Singapore Country Guide

Climate

 
 

As Singapore is located a mere 1.5 degrees north of the equator, its weather is usually sunny with no distinct seasons. Rain falls almost daily throughout the year, usually in sudden, heavy showers that rarely last longer than an hour. However, most rainfall occurs during the northeast monsoon (November to January), occasionally featuring lengthy spells of continuous rain. Spectacular thunderstorms can occur throughout the year and any time during the day. So it's wise to carry an umbrella at all times, both as a shade from the sun or cover from the rain.

The high temperature and humidity, combined with the lack of wind and the fact that temperatures can stay high during the night, can take its toll on visitors from colder parts of the world. Singapore's temperature averages around:
  • 32°C (86°F) daytime, 25°C (76°F) at night in December and January.
  • 33°C (92°F) daytime, 26°C (81°F) at night for the rest of the year.
Bear in mind that spending more than one hour outdoors for visitors from the colder climate can be very exhausting, especially if combined with moderate exercise.

Singaporeans themselves shun the heat and for a good reason. Many live in air-conditioned flats, work in air-conditioned offices, take the air-conditioned metro to air-conditioned shopping malls connected to each other by underground tunnels where they shop, eat, and exercise in air-conditioned fitness clubs. Follow their example if you want to avoid discomfort in the searing heat and humidity of Singapore.
