SINGAPORE: Parts of Singapore saw temperatures dip below 23°C on Wednesday evening, and this is expected to fall to as low as 22°C in the coming days.
“A monsoon surge is currently affecting the South China Sea and the surrounding region, and is forecast to persist over the next few days,” said an update posted on the National Environment Agency’s (NEA) Facebook page on Wednesday.
NEA added that overcast and windy conditions with periods of moderate to heavy rain, at times with thunder, are expected over Singapore for Wednesday and the next few days.
“The daily temperature during this period is expected to range between 22°C and 28°C.”
A reading of 22.9°C was recorded between 8pm and 9pm on Wednesday in Newton, according to the Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS).
This was just below the minimum temperature of 23°C earlier forecasted by the MSS.
Temperatures in some other parts of the island were also below 24°C.
On Monday, intense flash floods affected several areas in the eastern parts of Singapore causing mayhem on the roads as flood waters gushed from overwhelmed drainage systems.
Two people were also sent to hospital after a tree fell on them in Toa Payoh while at one housing block in Tampines, rainwater cascaded like a “waterfall” in a lift. – TODAY ONLINE
