KATHMANDU: The Meteorological Forecasting Division (MFD) has urged people in the central and western areas of the Tarai belt to observe precautionary measures against the heat wave as it would prevail for four more days.

The Division said that an abrupt rise was recorded in the maximum temperatures in those areas in the Tarai belt lately while the temperatures exceeded 40 degrees Celsius in recent days resulting in heat wave locally known as ‘Lu’.

A majority of the places in Sudurpaschim Province, Lumbini Province and Gandaki Province are still likely to reel under the heat wave for four more days.

Although the temperature in Tarai areas of Bagmati Province and western areas of the Madhesh Province is likely to drop slightly, the possibility of extreme heat was still there, informed the Division.

This year’s monsoon arrival in Nepal is expected to be delayed by a day or two from its usual arrival on June 13 chances are that the heat will increase even more.

Thus, the Division requested one and all concerned to remain cautioned. According to the Division, problems such as fatigue, weakness, excessive thirst, headache, leg cramps, dizziness, fainting, muscle pain and nausea could be experienced due to exposure to heat waves.

Hence, the Division has urged all to remain indoors and not to go outside unless it is absolutely essential.

Furthermore, the Division suggests wearing light clothes preferably cotton dress, covering the head while going out and drinking plenty of water and soft drinks (juice, syrup etc) among others to remain safe from heat waves.
