SINGAPORE - There will be some dry and warm days coming, with temperatures expected to reach 35 deg C, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said.

Thundery showers can be expected in the late morning or early afternoon on four to six days, NEA said in its fortnightly weather advisory.

Sumatra squalls will bring thunder, rain and gusty winds to most parts of the island on one or two days.

"In the first week of July, some days of dry and warm weather conditions can be expected. On these days, the daily maximum temperature could reach a high of 35 deg C," NEA said.

For other days, the temperature is forecast to peak at between 32 deg C and 34 deg C.

In June, the highest daily temperature recorded was 35.7 deg C. June 17 also saw the highest rainfall ever recorded for June.

"The heavy thundery showers that fell over Tuas recorded a daily total rainfall of 217mm, the highest ever recorded for the month of June," NEA said.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force was called upon to rescue 11 people trapped in three vehicles after a flash flood along Enterprise Road in Jurong West that afternoon.

The water level was up to knee-high in the vehicles.
