Dry Season in Singapore

Months: March to August

The only reason, a dry season is nominated is because the months of March to August experience a little less rain than the rest of the year. During Mid-may or August, the air quality is heavily impacted due to the haze blowing from the forests. 

Though it is not the most ideal time to visit Singapore, the beauty of blue clear skies may just win you over. 

Things to pack:

  • Sunscreens
  • Umbrella (for shade and occasional drizzle)
  • Lightweight clothes

Rainy Season in Singapore

Months: September to February. 

Heavy rains are generally expected. Take your time to explore the shopping malls, museums, and other indoor attractions. You can have a walk in the park or do a little sightseeing during the evening. 

Ensure you pack:

  • Monsoon essentials
  • Because of the humidity, stick to just an umbrella though, as raincoats can generally make you uncomfortable.
  • Waterproof travel bags and clothes.

Weather Safety Tips

Flash Floods

Wettest Months: November, December, and January

Average rainfall: 10.1, 12.5, and 9.23 inches respectively.

Singapore’s drainage system is as efficient as drainage systems can get. Even so, the heavy rain and high tides cause floods in the low-lying areas. Don’t worry, it is temporary and the drainage systems get it to the sea in under an hour! 

Lighting strikes

Most observed: April, May, October, and November

Lightning strikes are actually a health hazard for individuals in Singapore. The heat and humidity make it the perfect lightning ground. Worrying about the thunder, this Singapore Weather guide has the solution:

  • Avoid open spaces in the afternoon, which are the peak hours for lightning strikes.
  • As soon as you hear thunder, take shelter and stay undercover for at least 30 mins.
