Love the smell of the rain?
The unique climate of Singapore makes it the ideal place to visit all year round. It is perfectly positioned at 1 degree north of the equator ensuring a constant temperature level between 30 and 32 degrees Celsius, it is a bit cooler in the hilly parts of the country. It has a monsoon tropical climate with abundant rainfall and high humidity which rarely drops from its level of 75%.
Its proximity to the equator ensures that year-round the length of the day stays more or less the same throughout the year. Daily sunshine hours will, of course, depend on the cloud presence and during the monsoon season it may be approximately five hours, whereas over the drier months it will be about nine hours.
The seasons are not pronounced as far as the temperatures are concerned, but the coolest month is December as it experiences a slight drop, is the month with the highest humidity and lowest amount of sunshine because of the rains.
Also known as the monsoon of South Asia, the rainy seasons in the area are of the oldest weather phenomena and one of the most predictable. The climate in the area is determined by the summer monsoon and winter monsoon period caused by the direction of the winds which always blow from cold to warm regions.
The two monsoon seasons of Singapore are the Northeast Monsoon which occurs between December and early March, and the Southwest Monsoon from June to September. The Northeast Monsoon brings strong winds and heavier rainfall to Singapore.
Other rainfall events caused by the monsoons include the Sumatra squalls that develop to the west over the island of Sumatra and travel eastwards toward Singapore; and the regular afternoon and evening thunderstorms caused by the surface heating in combination with the afternoon sea breezes.
Therefore, the various rainfall seasons make no difference to when the ideal time is to visit Singapore.
