The Asian city of Singapore sits almost directly on the equator, which means that temperatures very rarely fluctuate. This impressive, bright and busy city can be enjoyed with a visit at any time of the year, though look to average rainfall levels to help to influence your decision about when to travel. Singapore Zoo, Universal Studios, and the Jurong Bird Park are just a few of the outdoor attractions that you might want to experience when it’s dry, but there are also many sheltered and indoor attractions in the event that you’re caught in the rain.
With its humid subtropical climate, Singapore’s rainfall is at its highest in November, December and January. December is the wettest month, with average rainfall levels of 269mm, but the levels in November and January remain fairly similar. If you do choose to visit between these months, then the wettest weather can provide an opportunity to visit an indoor market, Underwater World or one of the city’s undercover gardens. A flexible itinerary can help you to maximise your time, and it’s also worth being aware that December and January are wettest in the north east part of Singapore. These are also the coldest months, each with an average temperature of 26°C. Average highs and lows are 30°C and 23°C.
The months of February, March, April, May and June have fairly consistent levels of rainfall and very consistent temperatures (27°C average, with average highs of 31°C and average lows of 24°C). Rainfall levels average around 165mm to 175mm, but around the showers you’ll be able to tour the museums and enjoy the many things to do under shelter.
Typically wetter in the south west of Singapore, July, August and September are prone to some showers and thunderstorms in the morning but are typically drier through the afternoon. Average rainfall levels through these months are 150-171mm, whilst temperatures consistently average 27°C with highs and lows averaging 31°C and 24°C.
October in Singapore has an average temperature of 27°C, an average high of 31°C and an average low of 24°C. This warm weather is coupled with an average rainfall level of 191mm, which is fairly high for Singapore but also not as high as the average levels through November to January inclusive. If you’ve visiting Singapore then you’ll find that tropical rains are normal but can happen anywhere on the island and at any time, and so there is no reason to think that the potential for rain will mean that you’re stuck indoors for hours. Often the showers move around and are relatively short-lived, reducing the humidity for a while.
