    Too much Ying (cooling) no good, and causes illness. Must balance with some yang (heat). Durians should do the trick.

    Perhaps it might be significant for others or something, I don't know.

    There may be a complex Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) developing over Sumatra with a possible cold front moving in towards Singapore.

    Attempting to verify data with maritime Automatic Identification System (AIS) meteorological reports from vessels along the western Sumatra coastline but currently getting only corrupted binary data.

    Seems like it dissipated in intensity, guess it hadn't had the chance to smother the peat fires. Got to wait for another day then.

    Argh, my posts got cut off.

    Nucleation from artificial cloud seeding resulting in one hell of a core in the cell formation. A friend lecturing at NUH visually confirmed sightings of small diameter hails while driving along the AYE, didn't seems to last long though. Probably just several minutes.

    Had some free time to briefly look through preliminary meteorological data as shared. Maximum wind gust was approximately 80 km/hr to 90 km/hr within the core of the thunderstorm cell last afternoon as it passed from Northwestern Singapore through South-Western Singapore.

    A cluster of thunderstorm cells are currently actively detected over Riau Province, with echo returns of 50 dBZ to 65 dBZ (coded red). This should really help with the extinguishing / suppressing some of the peat fires.

    Updated hypothesised explanation with a more plausible theoretical approach regarding the hails by an amicable career professional who has also been extremely busy over the past several weeks as posted in another thread.

    This was my general understanding.

    Extremely heavy downpour in Western Singapore.

    Strong gusts reported. The maximum sustained wind speed as recorded by the anemometer is rather high too.

    State of Drought now exist in Southeast Asia (SEA), record days without rainfall in many areas (since 13th January 2014 for the Republic of Singapore).

    Water rationing begins in Peninsular Malaysia, agricultural commodity prices expected to rise.
