Singapore Weather August Averages, Singapore
What's the Weather like in Singapore in August
Consistency is the name of the game in Singapore when August comes around. The average daily temperature, low and high all stay the same from the months prior. The one change is the amount of rainfall, which increases slightly from July's 150mm. August sees 171mm fall. It's still considered the southwest monsoon season this month, so be prepared for heavier rain and thunderstorms during your visit.
The rain falls over 20 days this month and you have an 80% chance of a cloudy day, so bring along the umbrella. Don't let the rain dissuade you from visiting; the afternoon and evening showers can be a welcome reprieve from the heat and humidity of the day.
The daily average temperature stays put at 27°C (about 81°F), maintaining that consistent temperature all month long, compared to September, which has an average temperature of around 27°C (about 81°F).
At night, the lows drop down to 24°C (around 75°F), still a great temperature for getting outside, checking out the local bars and clubs. In the heat of the day, expect temperatures to soar up to 31°C (about 88°F).
Average Sunshine Hours
Each day, you'll get around 9 hours of sunshine, so you can have a nice long day to check out the restaurants, shopping, and attractions all across the island.
Average Sea Temperature
The average sea temperature this time of the year drops slightly, down to 29°C (around 84°F), still plenty warm for splashing around in the waves of the Java Sea. Or, at the very least, enjoy the hot weather by sitting out next to your hotel pool, sipping on a cool drink.
