The Meteorology Department today issued heat weather advisory in ' Extreme Caution' level to be expected in most part of the Northern, North-Central and North-Western provinces tomorrow.

The Met Department said the Heat Index Forecast was calculated by using relative humidity and maximum temperature and the effect it has on the body.

The department advised the public to remain hydrated and take breaks while also trying to stay in the shade as often as possible at job sites. They also advised those caring for the elderly and the sick who are indoors to take extra precautions and not to leave children unattended.

    Yesterday's temperature in KANDANA is 48c while in Mount Lavinia its 54c. Why MET Department at least highlight in Numbers so that people will understand the importance of taking safety measures

    M R Nazim, your thermometer is broken. Mount Lavinia was 38C on Sunday, not 58C as you have stated. The hottest temperature ever recorded was in Libya for 58 degrees celsius.. so I highly doubt it will ever reach 58C in Sri Lanka.

    Agree with Chris, you need to measure temperature in the shade. Not in direct sunlight.
