42C heat wave begins in Cyprus – code yellow warning issued

Cyprus HW
August 2015CYPRUS Another week of boiling weather has already begun, with forecasters predicting temperatures could rise as high as 42C by Tuesday. The Weather Service issued a ‘code yellow’ weather warning on Saturday, meaning: “The weather is potentially dangerous. The weather phenomena that have been forecast are not unusual, but be attentive if you intend to practice activities exposed to meteorological risks. Keep informed about the expected meteorological conditions and do not take any avoidable risks.”    
The entire island is already basking in “wall-to-wall sunshine” as a swathe of blistering hot air sweeps in from Asia. The heat wave will peak on Tuesday with temperatures reaching 42 degrees inland, a meteorologist told the Cyprus News Agency. The mercury this weekend will average around the 38 degrees mark and will gradually climb above 40ºC, with 41 degrees being the average. On the coastal areas slightly lower temperatures, ranging from 34 to 38 degrees, are expected.
The heat could have health impacts, causing dehydration and exhaustion, particularly in people over age 65, infants and young children, people with medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, asthma or respiratory conditions. People who have been consuming caffeine or alcohol are also at a higher risk of dehydration, public health officials said. –Famagusta Gazette

One Response to 42C heat wave begins in Cyprus – code yellow warning issued

  1. Ines Radman says:

    We here in Croatia just left a time of extreme heat as well. Normal summer temps for this time of year are around 29 to 31C. We were in the 35 to 38C range for almost 2 weeks. It’s not the heat so much as the humidity, some nights we experienced a thick Fog over the island with so much moisture you could feel it enter your lungs. We are living in extreme times and I have been warning my people now for years to be prepared. So what happens when you are not prepared? You can’t even get a hold of any company that installs A/C units that’s what happens. I love your blog.
