So get your umbrellas ready and maybe even a jacket or windbreaker as the weather gets a lot more chill.

More rain & less haze

We hope the refreshing downpour helped to chase away Singaporeans’ mid-week gloom and brightened everyone’s dreary mood.

Here’s wishing that the rain lasts a while longer so we can enjoy the cooling weather as the skies clear up from the haze.
