Heatwave warning Issued by Met Service

Inland areas reaching 42°C, mountain regions at 33°C


The Meteorology Department has recently issued a yellow warning for extremely high temperatures.

The warning will be in effect from noon today (July 26) until 6:00 PM.

During this time, temperatures are expected to soar to around 42 degrees Celsius in some inland areas, while higher mountain regions may experience temperatures around 33 degrees Celsius.

The current weather conditions are influenced by a combination of seasonal low pressure and warm air masses affecting the region.

Today's weather is predicted to be predominantly sunny and hot. Initially, winds will be light and variable, around 3 on the Beaufort scale. By the afternoon, they will shift from mainly southwest to northwest, still relatively light to moderate, around 3 to 4 on the Beaufort scale. The sea is expected to be slightly rough.

Temperatures are expected to reach a scorching 42 degrees in inland areas, while western coasts will experience around 36 degrees. The remaining coastal areas will see temperatures hovering around 38 degrees, and higher mountainous regions will have slightly cooler temperatures of around 33 degrees.

As the evening approaches, the weather will remain mainly clear. The winds will gradually change direction, becoming northwesterly to northeasterly, and in the northern coastal areas, southeasterly, with speeds of around 3 on the Beaufort scale. The sea will be calm to slightly rough.

During the evening hours, temperatures will drop to around 26 degrees in inland areas and the southern and eastern coasts. The other coastal areas can expect temperatures around 24 degrees, while higher mountainous regions will cool down to around 22 degrees.

Looking ahead, the weather is expected to remain mainly sunny on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Temperatures will stay consistent on Thursday and Friday, with a slight decrease on Saturday, but overall, they will remain significantly higher than the average climatic temperatures.

Please stay prepared and take the necessary precautions to stay safe during this intense heatwave period. Remember to stay hydrated and avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, especially during peak hours.
