Hotter days ahead, says NEA

Expect slightly hazy and warmer conditions in the next fortnight, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said in its weather outlook report for July 16 to 31.

"Periods of consecutive dry days are common during the Southwest Monsoon season. In the next fortnight, Singapore could experience slightly hazy conditions on a few days," it said.

"And with strong daytime heating and drier weather conditions expected in the region, a few warm days with maximum daytime temperature of around 34 deg C can be expected."

NEA said that short-duration thundery showers can be expected on three to four days in the late mornings and afternoons. And thundery showers with gusty winds can also be expected on one to two days in the predawn hours and morning.

But rainfall for the month is expected to be average.
