SINGAPORE - Temperatures could reach a high of 35 deg C on a few days in the next two weeks, said the National Environment Agency (NEA) on Friday (Sept 30).

"The warm temperatures experienced in the last week of September can still be expected on a few days in the first two weeks of October," NEA said.

The daily maximum temperatures are forecast to be between 33 deg C and 34 deg C on most days and could reach a high of around 35 deg C on a few days.

South-west monsoon conditions, with low-level winds from the south-west or west, are forecast to continue into the first half of October.

They will likely become light and "variable in direction" towards the middle of October.

Squall lines moving eastwards from the Straits of Malacca could result in widespread thundery showers with occasional gusty winds on two or three days between the pre-dawn hours and morning.

Short, thundery showers are expected on four to six days, mostly in the late morning and afternoon.

Rainfall is expected to be slightly below normal.
