For those who don’t have to work, they can relax and get a kopi-o to savour the chilly temperature.

Sumatra squalls headed to Singapore during this period, resulting in the above-average rainfall.

Temperatures dropped in certain areas due to rain

East Coast Parkway (ECP)’s temperature dropped all the way to 23°C today — not a great day for going to the beach or cycling, but certainly nice for those living in the vicinity.

At the same time, ECP also took the highest temperature recorded today, with 28.3°C at 2.30am earlier.

Within a matter of hours, the tide had swung drastically.

Another islandwide shower might appear in Sep

This won’t be the last time thundery showers rear their head this month, according to the Met Service.

There might be another instance of islandwide showers, perhaps in the next few days.
