THE dry spell is likely to continue, even as localised showers occur from time to time.

The spell, said the National Environment Agency (NEA) and PUB in a joint advisory yesterday, is expected to persist in the first half of this month.

Last month was Singapore's driest month since 1869. Just 0.2mm of rainfall - from only seven days of brief showers, mainly in western Singapore - was recorded at the Changi climate station, which NEA uses as a reference station.

The previous record was 6.3mm in February 2010.



The thirsty will likely get a reprieve later this month, when the expected onset of the inter-monsoon season brings rain.

But the thirsty will likely get a reprieve later this month, when the expected onset of the inter-monsoon season brings rain.

The advisory urged the public to conserve water by taking showers of under five minutes, washing clothes on a full load in washing machines, washing cars less often, and reusing water for non-potable (non-drinkable) purposes.

"The amount of water we save will help stretch our limited water resources longer," said the agencies.
