SINGAPORE - Up to 10 days of rain can be expected in the next two weeks, according to a National Environment Agency (NEA) weather advisory.

In addition, one to two days of wind and rain in the early mornings are forecast, due to the passage of a Sumatra squall.

However, the temperature will still be high. The daily maximum temperature could reach a high of around 34 deg C.

On most days, it is expected to range between 32 deg C and 33 deg C.

In the second half of July, the weather in Singapore will continue to be influenced by the prevailing south-west monsoon, NEA added.

The highest recorded temperature in the last two weeks was 36 deg C. It was recorded in the north on July 3.

The daily maximum temperature exceeded 35 deg C on five days.
