Geography of Singapore

Singapore has a typical rainforest climate. The average temperature during the year varies slightly, from 25 ~ C in January to 27 ~ C in June. The average rainfall during the year amounts to about 2,700 mm. December and January, when the northeast passage enters humid air from the sea, are the wettest months with about 250 mm of rain each. The heavy rainfall and the flat, urban, embossed terrain mean that floods are common.

The natural vegetation consists of lowland rainforest and mangrove forest along the coasts. Today, only fragments of natural rainforest remain.

Nature conservation
