GEORGE TOWN: Penang is enduring a hot spell with temperatures hitting 35 degrees Celsius and above in the afternoons.
A Penang Meteorological Department spokesman said the phenomenon which started on March 21 has resulted in the northern part of Peninsular Malaysia experiencing a heat wave.
"An overhang of haze has also contributed to the bad weather. It is collecting hot air and there is no rain to clean up the air," he told Bernama when asked about the hot spell.
The heat and haze is expected to be reduced next week, if its rains as forecast.
Penangites are advised to minimise outdoor activities and drink a lot of water to prevent any illness during this period. - Bernama
