The Meteorological Service Division (MSD) is warning of blistering heat for Trinidad and Tobago for the rest of this week and into weekend due to persistently hot conditions.
It has been very hot and it is going to remain this way in the coming days ahead. The dry season hottest spell to date is showing little or no indication of easing over the coming five (5) days or at least through the coming weekend.
Maximum temperatures during the day have soared above 34.8 0C during seven of the last nine days and are expected to climb to similar values over the next few days. In the cities, built up and urban areas maximum temperatures are expected to be more intense.
The hottest time of the day is between 11:00am to 2:00pm.
The Meteorological Service Division advisers the importance of wearing appropriate clothing, staying hydrated and to keep out of the sun.
