Singapore In February & March 2020: What’s On
All year round, Singapore experiences humid, hot weather that changes very little as the months go by. However, if you visit in February and March, you’ll enjoy some of the sunniest weather this city can boast, combined with relatively pleasant weather. That’s why, although it isn’t a true “shoulder season”, February and March make up the best times to visit Singapore. Because of its tropical, balmy weather, visitors generally have to carry water, sunscreen, and airy clothes.
Weather-wise, February and March are some of the best months to visit Singapore. February is the month of the waning monsoon. There’s usually only about thirteen days of rain as the Northeast Monsoon subsides. Average temperatures increase marginally to about 31 C, dropping to around 24 C in the evenings.
Although March is the sunniest month, occasional thunderstorms do happen, so carry an umbrella. On average, March is less windy, and the weather can be rather warm at a mean temperature of 31 C.
