Heat advisory issued to several provinces



Warnings have been issued once again over extreme heat in several parts of the island.

The Department of Meteorology accordingly has issued what is being termed as a “heat index advisory” for several parts of the country.

The Met Department said the heat index, the temperature felt on the human body is expected to increase up to ‘Caution’ level at some places in the Northern, North-Central, North-Western and Eastern provinces and in the Monaragala and Hambantota districts.

The heat index forecast is calculated by using relative humidity and maximum temperature and is the condition that is felt on an individual’s body.
