Temperature

CAUTION: Hot Spell Alert

The Met Office is warning of extremely hot conditions for the next three to four days:

"Maximum temperatures during the day have equalled or exceeded 34 degrees celsius on three of the last six days and there is a 60 percent probability for similar values over the next three to four days."

"In the cities, built-up and urban areas, maximum temperatures are expected to be more intense."

"These high temperatures can be hazardous to health, especially for people who may particularly vulnerable such as older people, persons with long-term or serious illnesses and young children."

The Met Office is advising citizens to stay out of the sun during the hottest time of the day, between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm, and to wear appropriate clothing, staying hydrated at all times. 

The Met Office is also warning citizens against leaving anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children and animals. 

The Met Office is warning that these high temperatures and dry air, along with the current moderate-to-strong winds will also combine to create high fire potential in grassy areas. 

Persons are advised to avoid activities that promote open flames, fires, and sparks since they have the potential to quickly develop into bush fires.
