The climate of Singapore: when to go to Singapore

The climate of Singapore is a warm and humid equatorial climate, with two distinct monsoon seasons, the north-east monsoon blows between December and March, while the south-west monsoon blows between June and September.

The rainy months are from October to January, but in Singapore rains throughout the year, fall in average about 2400 mm of rain per year. The city of Singapore has an average of 178 rainy days per year, the month with less rainy days is February with 11 days of rain, while the months of November and December are the ones with the most rainy days, as many as 19 rainy days in each month. The hours of sunshine are little more than 2,000 a year.

Because of the proximity to the equator the temperatures are always high and the air is very humid. Temperatures vary little from season to season and even between day and night temperature variations are minimal. The average minimum temperatures are generally around 23°C-24°C while the average maximum temperatures vary between 30°C and 32°C throughout the year. The months of April and May are the hottest months of the year.


The best time for a travel to Singapore are the relatively less rainy months between May and September. During a trip to avoid are the wettest months between November and January.
