Singapore Weather

Singapore is just 137km North of the Equator, which means you don’t really need the weather forecast above. Its always the same. In fact, while the above is dynamic, I can tell you now what it probably says: 26-32°C with a a chance of thunderstorm. Because that’s what it is everyday. All day, everyday, 365 days a year. Along with +80% humidity.

This all sounds horrible but its not that bad. Rain usually only lasts an hour or so and is flanked with sun either side. The rain also helps cool temperatures a little. The MRT, Taxis, and Shopping malls are all pumping with A/C. So much so in fact you may need to carry a light jacket with you in case the a/c gets a bit much.

When it does rain in Singapore, it gets very heavy, very quickly. If you feel a rain drop and see dark clouds, you have about 10-15min to get inside or you’re going swimming. There are numerous covered walkways and underground connections that let you escape both rain and harsh sun when getting around. The drainage system in Singapore is very good, and with the constant heat, there will soon be no sign that 30min ago it was raining for the apocalypse.

Theoretically, January is the coolest month, April the warmest, and November to January the wettest, but these are just slightly lower/higher averages and its pretty hard to tell the difference if you live here year-round.

You really can’t plan anything weather-reliant in Singapore without a back-up plan. So just go for it and hope for the best!
