Morning Shot: Why does it feel hotter than what it really is? Science!

View descriptionShare

It’s getting hot in Singapore but how hot? 

Perhaps you might be wondering why the perceived mercury level is higher than what’s recorded, and what you can do to better beat the heat. 

The weatherman has warned that April and May, which are typically the hottest months of the year, could potentially get warmer due to the lingering impact of El Nino. El Nino is a phenomenon which causes drier, hotter weather over South-east Asia.

On this episode of Morning Shot, Dr Fabian Lim, Senior Lecturer from the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine at NTU and Dr Dhrubajyoti Samanta, Senior Research Fellow from the Earth Observatory of Singapore at NTU explain.
