    What's the Weather like in Singapore in December

    The official start of the northeast monsoon season in Singapore, December sees the highest rainfall amounts of the entire year. This month, a staggering 269 mm of rain falls over 25 days.

    Average Sunshine Hours

    Temperature

    The heat from the summer has tempered somewhat, with a daily average temperature of 26°C (about 79°F). During the day, the highs still reach up to 29°C (around 84°F), but fortunately the humidity is also down, so it's more comfortable. At night, the lows drop down to 23°C (about 73°F).

    Depending on your tolerance for cold, you might want a jacket for the nighttime hours, especially if you'll be spending time outside. During the day, short-sleeve shirts and shorts are still appropriate. You'll want a rain coat or poncho, as well as an umbrella, to keep you dry as you move from attraction to attraction.

    The chance of rain on any given day is 40% and the chance of a cloudy day is 80%.

    Now isn't the best time to visit the beach, with the large chances of rain and driving thunderstorms. If you do catch a rare sunny day and head towards the Java Sea, you'll be greeted with warm waters.
