sets in, Singapore
experiences a distinct shift in weather, marking the onset of the Northeast Monsoon. The highest relative humidity of the year is recorded at 86.4%, while the rainfall increases to a significant 257mm. Such meteorological changes underscore the movement towards wetter and more humid conditions compared to preceding months. Despite the damp conditions, the city continues to bask in warmth, creating an authentic tropical rainforest-like atmosphere. These weather dynamics continue to provide a distinct charm to this cosmopolitan city-state.
November's advent notes a subtle adjustment in average high-temperature to a still tropical 30.6°C from October
. In Singapore, the November nights cool down to an average low of 23.7°C.
The heat index value for November is computed to be a blistering 42°C. Exercise enhanced safety steps, heat cramps and heat exhaustion are probable. Heatstroke could be a result of sustained activity.
Heat index guidelines indicate values are for light wind scenarios and shaded regions. With direct sunlight, the heat index could increase by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'felt air temperature', provides an understanding of perceived warmth by combining temperature and relative humidity. Elements such as metabolic variations, being pregnant, and physical activity can impact one's weather perception. With direct sunlight, be aware that it might enhance the heat sensation, raising the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Children usually face more risks than adults as their ability to sweat is less. Additionally, their larger skin surface in relation to their petite bodies and higher heat output due to their activities increases their vulnerability.
By perspiring, the human body can shed its excessive warmth since evaporated sweat cools it off. An increase in relative humidity hinders the body's normal cooling function by reducing evaporation, thereby decreasing the rate of body cooling and enhancing the sense of warmth. Heat-related disorders may develop if heat gain in the body overshadows its cooling capacity, leading to elevated temperatures.
In November, the average relative humidity in Singapore is 86.4%.
In November, the rain falls for 19 days. Throughout November, 257mm of precipitation is accumulated. Throughout the year, in Singapore, there are 178 rainfall days, and 2343mm of precipitation is accumulated.

On the first day of the month, sunrise is at 06:45 and sunset at 18:50. On the last day of November, in Singapore, sunrise is at 06:51 and sunset at 18:54 +08.
The months with the least sunshine in Singapore are November and December
, with an average of 4.3h of sunshine.
through December, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index. A UV Index reading of 11, and higher, represents an extreme threat to health from unprotected exposure to Sun's UV rays for the ordinary person.Note
: The average daily UV index of 12 in November transforms into the following instructions:
Take every vital safeguard, as unprotected skin and eyes may suffer burns rapidly. Remember that UV radiation from the Sun is strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Make an effort to limit direct sun exposure during this time. Combat UV radiation's detrimental effects with sun-safe clothing and UV-blocking eyewear. A sunscreen boasting a minimum SPF of 30 should be generously applied and reapplied even on cloudy days, post swim or outdoor exercise. Caution! Sand and water surfaces escalate the UV intensity from the Sun.
