Enjoy the cool while it lasts, because the National Environment Agency (NEA) has said that temperatures are unlikely to dip below 22
°C in the coming days.

The mercury is expected to rise to between 23 °
C and 24 ³C over the next few days, NEA said in its Facebook update yesterday afternoon.

This is after Singapore recorded one of its lowest temperatures as the thermometer reading dipped to 21.2 °C in Admiralty and Jurong West at around 5am yesterday. This was slightly lower than the 21.4 °
C recorded in Jurong West last Friday.

At other locations across the island yesterday, the lowest temperatures ranged from 21.3 °
C to 22.2 °C, NEA said.

Singapore last recorded a temperature of 21.2 °
C in 2016, but the mercury has dipped even lower before - to 20.1 °C in 2014 and 20 °C in 2013.

The lowest temperature recorded here was 19 °
C in Paya Lebar on Feb 14, 1989.

The current cool spell in Singapore is the result of an ongoing monsoon surge over the South China Sea, where the sudden increase in wind speed brings with it cool air from the winter chill in the northern hemisphere.

But NEA said the rainfall is "not considered high for a monsoon surge event".
