marks the mid-point of the year in Singapore
. While there's a noticeable drop in relative humidity, the general climate parameters remain consistent with the preceding months. June's weather is marked by a slight dip in precipitation compared to May
. The city continues to enjoy long daylight hours and abundant sunshine, favourable for outdoor pursuits. The transition from May to June is smooth, with no drastic variation in weather conditions, ensuring a pleasant atmosphere for locals and visitors.
June's climate in Singapore shows a minor adjustment in average high-temperatures to a still hot 31.3°C from May's 31.6°C. Singapore records an average low of 24.8°C throughout the nights in June.
For June, the heat index is computed to be an extremely hot 43°C. Keep guard
: Heat cramps and heat exhaustion are likely. Continued activity increases the risk of heatstroke.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. Direct sunlight has the potential to heighten heat index values by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature' or 'feels like', melds the effects of warmth and moisture to generate a feeling of heat. A person's impression of weather can be affected by numerous aspects, among them metabolic variations, pregnancy, and activity levels. It is noteworthy to mention that direct sunlight exposure can augment the felt temperature, leading to an increase in the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are particularly meaningful for babies and toddlers. Children often miss understanding the importance of rest and rehydration. Thirst usually appears late during dehydration - therefore, maintaining hydration, particularly during long physical activities, is essential.
Perspiring is a crucial mechanism for the human body, allowing it to release excessive warmth through evaporating sweat. Augmented relative humidity impedes typical body cooling mechanisms by lowering the evaporation rate, resulting in decreased body cooling and an amplified perception of heat. When the heat gained surpasses the body's cooling capacity, temperatures rise, signaling potential health concerns.
The average relative humidity in June is 83%.
In June, in Singapore, the rain falls for 13 days. Throughout June, 162mm of precipitation is accumulated. Throughout the year, in Singapore, there are 178 rainfall days, and 2343mm of precipitation is accumulated.
May and June, with an average sea temperature of 30.2°C, are months with the warmest seawater.Note
: It is often perceived that water temperatures beyond 30°C lack the cooling effect desired during hot weather.
The month with the longest days is June, with an average of 12h and 12min of daylight.
On the first day of June in Singapore, Singapore, sunrise is at 06:56 and sunset at 19:08. On the last day of the month, sunrise is at 07:02 and sunset at 19:14 +08.
The average sunshine in June in Singapore is 5.9h.
The months with the lowest UV index are June and July
, with an average maximum UV index of 11. A UV Index reading of 11, and higher, represents an ultimate health vulnerability from unsafe exposure to UV radiation for the ordinary person.Note
: In June, the maximum UV index of 11 translates into these guidelines:
Take every vital safeguard, as unprotected skin and eyes may suffer burns rapidly. Seek shade and limit direct sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., the peak period for UV radiation. Keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not offer complete sun protection. Sunglasses providing both UVA and UVB protection are non-negotiable on sunlit days. Sunscreen with a sun protection factor of no less than 30 should be used liberally and reapplied frequently on overcast days, including after every swim or outdoor activity. Warning! The reflection of sand and water increases the UV dose.
