The Department of Meteorology yesterday issued a heat weather advisory, warning people in eight districts to be extremely cautious of the hot weather.   

According to the heat advisory issued by the department, the eight districts are Kilinochchi, Mannar, Mullaitivu, Vavuniya, Trincomalee, Polonnaruwa, Batticaloa and Ampara.   
The department warned that those living in these areas should avoid venturing outside too much in the next few days, particularly in the morning hours as heat strokes, cramps and heat exhaustion were some of the after effects that could occur if precautions were not taken.   

Several areas including Anuradhapura, Puttalam, Kurunegala, Matale, Gampaha, Colombo, Kalutara, Galle, Matara, Hambantota, Monaragala and Ratnapura would also experience dry weather and residents were warned to take extra precautions when being out in the open in these areas as well.   

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