Singapore’s ever-unpredictable weather has dropped to even cooler temperatures.
So far today, the coolest things have gotten was 22.5C this morning in Admiralty, according to the state weather agency, as showers continued to fall across the country and roads flooded for a second day.
As of noon, today’s high had hit 27.6C at around 5am in East Coast Parkway. The most rainfall – 113.6 millimeters – had fallen in Bukit Panjang. Heavy rain has soaked Singapore since the start of the month.
The National Environmental Agency this morning issued flash flood warnings at eight locations including Woodlands, Sungei Tengah and Seletar roads. A video making the rounds showed vehicles driving slowly on a flooded road leading toward Punggol.
Elsewhere, a family of otters was spotted swimming against heavy currents in a drainage canal.
Things are expected to heat up going into the weekend with daily highs of about 30C – possibly up to 34C some days – forecast for the rest of July.
Singaporeans should expect more thundery showers for the rest of the month with more “localised” downpours of shorter duration almost daily.
