June is a busy season in Singapore! It’s the school holiday for Singapore, as well as for many other countries. Therefore, it’s the peak season for travel.
There are 2 public holidays this month, namely: Vesak Day on 2 June 2023 and Hari Raya Haji on 29 June 2023.
Singapore’s Weather in June
June is a Southwest Monsoon Season in Singapore. During this time, there will be occasional “Sumatra Squalls” with wind gusts of 40-80 km/h occurring between the predawn hours and midday. Short duration showers/thunderstorms in the afternoon are also common.
Despite the thunderstorms, the afternoon temperature is considerably hot, with maximum temperature around 31.9°C.
Based on historical data between 1991 to 2020, it rains 13 days out of 30 days. So, it will rain 43% of the month.
I recommend that you bookmark Singapore’s weather website, which is a very useful website to see current rain area & intensity, and to check the rain forecast for the next 4 days.
Most of the rains have pretty short duration. So you don’t have to cancel your plan if the forecast is rain. Just bring foldable umbrella if you’re planning to explore the outdoors.
June’s temperature hovers between 25.7 to 31.9 degrees Celsius (78.3 to 89.4 degrees Fahrenheit). Generally, the temperature in Singapore doesn’t differ much from month to month.
In June, the sun rises between 6.56am (1 Jun) to 7.02am (30 Jun) and sunset occurs between 7.08pm (1 Jun) to 7.14pm (30 Jun).
