The country of Singapore is located in Southeast Asia in the south of what is called the Malay Peninsula. There are a total of 63 islands which make up the entire country, the main one of which is Singapore Island. The country has what is called tropical rainforest climate and the temperatures stay close to the same throughout the year. There are no different seasons which you could recognize except for the months of November through January which usually see more rain than the others. The average high temperature year round for the entire country is 31 Celsius (87.8 Fahrenheit) while the average low is 24.1 Celsius (75.4 Fahrenheit). As a whole the country sees a total of 2,343.1 millimeters (92.248 inches) of rain each year.
Hot And Humid
Because the year stays pretty much the same temperature wise it is pretty safe to say that no matter when you go, humidity will be high. The coldest month is December and the average high temperature then is 29.9 Celsius (85.8 Fahrenheit). Humidity even in the coolest month as you can imagine is very high. This is due to Singapore's location. Being made of islands can make a country rather humid especially when they are located just by the equator as Singapore is. At Singapore Weather.Net you will find all the information you need about the current conditions but more than likely what you will find is that the temperatures are high. The coolest average low temperature is 23.4 Celsius (74.1 Fahrenheit).
The Monsoon Season
If you are coming to Singapore, you will soon realize that Singapore weather does not change much except during the monsoon season. The monsoon starts in November and it finishes in January. The difference is not in the temperatures but rather in the amount of rain that you will experience. Visiting during this time requires that you stay informed so check us out at www.singaporeweather.net for weather updates. The rainiest month is December when Singapore sees a total of 288.2 millimeters (11.346 inches) of rain. That is close to 100 millimeters (3.94 inches) more than the highest month not in the monsoon season. Usually the rain showers are quick passing but during the monsoon season you can have a full day's worth of rain.
Does It Ever Get Cold?
With all those temperatures in the 80s and 70s, you may be wondering if it ever gets cold in Singapore. The quick answer is no. If you are visiting Singapore weather when the weather at home is cool you would do well to just leave your jacket at home anyway. Keep in mind that Singapore is located in an area that is described as the tropics. The one thing you might need is a raincoat but wearing a heavy one will be a very uncomfortable experience as you will get too warm. No matter when you check Singapore Weather.Net you will not be likely to see temperatures in the 60s ever. It has happened before but it is not normal.
Rain Throughout The Year
No matter when you visit Singapore you are likely to see rain. Singapore weather experiences rain almost half of the days in a year. The average number of days which see a good amount of rain is 177. That means that 5 extra days would be half a year. November and December are the months with the highest number of rainy days and February the driest, if you can call it dry. That is one of the realities that you will notice when you visit www.singaporeweather.net. It really is not easy to escape the rain no matter where in Singapore you are or when you visit. Your best chances would be in the month of February which has an average of 11 days of rain.
Best Time To Visit
Because Singapore does not show much change in the weather it is not easy to tell you what months of the year you should visit so let's look at the rain as a factor. The months with the least amount of rain are February, June and July. February gives you the advantage of having only an average of 11 days with rain but June and July on average get just a little less rain. The humidity is close to the same during both times of the year and the good news is that those 3 months are the ones when the humidity is the lowest. Because of that visiting during those three months will give you the best chance to enjoy yourself.
