Kedah, Perlis are the hottest states


KUALA LUMPUR: The highest temperatures yesterday were recorded at 3pm in Kedah and Perlis, with 37ºC in Alor Setar and 36ºC in Chuping, respectively.

The temperature was expected to return to normal in the middle of next month, said Meteorological Department deputy director-general (weather and climate) Alui Bahari.

“The two states usually experience hot weather in March and April,” he said.

Alui said Langkawi had recorded 43 days without rain so far and advised the people to reduce outdoor activities and drink plenty of water to prevent heatstroke.

“During the inter-monsoon season in the middle of next month, west coast states in the peninsula are expected to experience rain or thunderstorms in the evenings,” he said.

The rain and thunderstorms would reduce the heat brought on by the El Nino phenomenon, he added. — Bernama
