Weather & Climate new

Singapore has a warm and humid climate throughout the year with a daily average temperature range of 24 degrees Celsius to 31 degrees Celsius. Light and summer clothing made from natural fabrics like cotton is best for everyday wear. Casual dress is acceptable for most situations and occasions but some establishments may require a more formal dress code. It is always advisable to check beforehand on dress regulations, if any.

Singapore lies just north of the Equator near Lat 1.5 deg N and Long 104 deg E. Because of its geographical location and maritime exposure, its climate is characterised by uniform temperature and pressure, high humidity and abundant rainfall. The climate of Singapore can be divided into two main seasons, the Northeast Monsoon and the Southwest Monsoon season, separated by two relatively short inter-monsoon periods.

As a Singapore is an island on the equator every day is hot and humid. The only fabrics that make sense here are cotton, linen and lightweight silk. This is not a city for nylon. As a tourist, cotton capri pants and a lightweight blouse with a short or capped sleeve (for Muslim mosques, etc.) will work everywhere. Tank tops are fine if you're not visiting religious centres. A lightweight sweater in your bag is a must, though, as the airconditioning can be fierce in some places. No one wears raincoats; it would be like wearing a portable sauna. Just tuck a small umbrella in your bag if you're visiting in Dec-Jan or August-Sept. No stockings required even for the dressiest of events. Singapore is a fashionable, but informal city. Use sunscreen every day.
