Singapore in June

Singapore in June 2024 – Things To Do, Festivals, Events & Weather

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 is 1 public holidays this month, and that is Hari Raya Haji on 17 June 2024 (Fri). Because it is a long weekend, expect more traffic at Woodlands & Tuas (many people will be going to Malaysia to spend the long weekend), as well as at Changi Airport.

School holiday in Singapore starts from 25 May 2024 (Sat) to 23 June 2024 (Sun). Some attractions, especially kids-oriented attractions, and restaurants will be more crowded than usual.

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).
