Scattered thunderstorms are likely to occur over various parts of the island during the late morning and early afternoon hours on most days.

On a few occasions, the entire island may experience extensive rainfall accompanied by strong winds in the mornings.

This weather pattern is attributed to the onset of the south-west monsoon season, expected to commence in the next fortnight. During this period, winds will progressively intensify and predominantly blow from the south-east or south-west. This season typically lasts until September.

Warmer nights with minimum temperatures reaching up to 28 degrees Celsius are anticipated on certain days. This is due to the south-east winds carrying warm, humid air from the sea over the land.

Unfortunately, there will be no relief from the daytime heat, as daily maximum temperatures are projected to range between 33 degrees Celsius and 34 degrees Celsius on most days.

On a few days, the temperature could potentially rise to around 35 degrees Celsius when there is minimal cloud cover.

This trend of hot weather in May continues, with maximum temperatures reaching at least 34 degrees Celsius on 10 days. The highest daily temperature recorded was 36.1 degrees Celsius in Choa Chu Kang on May 14.

The island experienced above-average rainfall in the first half of May. The most significant anomaly was recorded in the Lower Peirce area, where the rainfall was 182 per cent above the average.
