NIMET warns of possible rise in temperature
Nigerian Meteorological Agency has warned of possible rise in temperature across some cities, which might lead to thermal discomfort.
In a statement signed by the General Manager, Public Relations Muntati Yusuf, the organisation said observations indicate that temperature could rise above 40 degrees in the next 48 hours.
The statement reads: “Parts of Kebbi, Sokoto, Zamfara, Taraba and Adamawa are expected to record temperatures greater than 40°C. While most parts of the northern cities are expected to record temperatures between 35°C and 40°C, this includes parts of Oyo, Kwara, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nasarawa and Benue.”
It warned that cities like Bauchi, Gombe, Borno and Yola are at risk of experiencing high thermal discomfort, while in the following days, parts of Kebbi, Sokoto, Zamfara, Taraba and Adamawa are to experience temperatures greater than 40°C.
The agency, therefore, advised people in these locations to drink a lot of fluid throughout this period.
