How To Stay Dry This Monsoon Season: A Definitive Guide to The Most Helpful Umbrellas

Thundery skies with heavy clouds overcast. The weather looks set to rain with showers expected to pour in most parts of Singapore all afternoon this week, and temperatures rising to a high of 35°C. The weather forecast doesn’t seem to bring such great news.

Well, with the effects of global warming and the El Niño phenomenon going on, worldwide temperatures have been soaring and rainfall has been at a record high due to evaporation and precipitation of clouds as a result of the increased temperatures. Furthermore, we’re currently in the midst of a monsoon season. According to the National Environment Agency (NEA), “[T]he prevailing inter-monsoon conditions are expected to continue for the rest of April 2017 and extend into May 2017. During the inter-monsoon period, the monsoon rain band typically lies close to the Equator. The inter-monsoon period is characterized by days that are generally warm with daily temperatures of 33°C to 34°C, and could reach up to 35°C on some days.”

To that, we say: arm yourself with the right rainwear and a trusty umbrella to keep yourself dry as much as possible.
