Monsoon Season

Monsoon season - that time of the year when the weather gets cold and wet. According to NEA it is now:

  • North-East Monsoon Season - December to early March
  • Northeast winds prevail, sometimes reaching 20 km/h. Cloudy conditions in December and January with frequent afternoon showers. Spells of widespread moderate to heavy rain might occur lasting from 1 to 3 days at a stretch. Relatively drier in February till early March. Also generally windy with wind speeds sometimes reaching 30 to 40 km/h in the months of January and February.

It can get as low (as it can get for an island near the equator) as 23°C to as high as 34°C; all within one day. I used to think that the rainy season was around October to December, but apparently I seem to have forgotten that it hasn't ended yet. >_<


  1. it's raining here in the wettest town of Malaysia, Taiping. Singapore too?
