Reasons for dry spell run hot and cold

Reasons for dry spell run hot and cold | Climate and weather | Scoop.it
SINGAPORE - Singapore and Malaysia's prolonged dry weather may have been caused by cooler-than-usual sea surface temperatures in the nearby South China Sea.This could have lessened the evaporation of seawater and the moisture content of monsoonal winds which help cause rain here, and possibly weakened the force of the winds themselves.Other factors could include abnormal weather events in other parts of the world, such as extreme cold and warmth in the United States, having a "knock-on" impact on regional weather.

Dry spell sparks fires at Punggol and Jurong East

Dry spell sparks fires at Punggol and Jurong East | Climate and weather | Scoop.it
At least two patches of brush caught fire on Saturday at Punggol and Jurong East, a likely result of one of Singapore's longest periods of dry weather.
The fire in Punggol, which broke out at the junction of Punggol Waterway and Punggol Road resulted in a blaze the size of a football field, said the Singapore Civil Defence Force which received a call at about 5.20pm. Two fire engines, one Red Rhino and a support vehicle were sent to the site. The fire was put out before 6.45pm, and no one was injured.

Malaysia, Singapore grapple with prolonged dry spell

Malaysia, Singapore grapple with prolonged dry spell | Climate and weather | Scoop.it
By Laura Philomin and Stuart Grudgings SINGAPORE/KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Singapore and Malaysia are grappling with some of the driest weather they have ever seen, forcing the tiny city-state to ramp up supplies of recycled water while its neighbor rations reserves amid disruptions to farming and fisheries. Singapore, which experiences tropical downpours on most days, suffered its longest dry spell on record between January 13 and February 8 and has had little rain since. Shares in Hyflux Ltd, which operates desalination and water recycling operations in Singapore, have risen 3.5 pct over the past month. In peninsular Malaysia, 15 areas have not had rainfall in more than 20 days, with some of them dry for more than a month, according to the Malaysian Meteorological Department.
