The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET) has released the Heat Index Forecast for April advising people to stay indoors between the hours of 12.00 noon to 4.00 pm. 

The index was released on Thursday on the agency’s official X handle

According to the report, “Heat stress is the product of so many factors — humidity, sun, wind (ventilation), hydration, clothing and physical fitness. 

“As we expect rains to fall in some parts of the south, this may temporarily reduce the temperatures in these areas,” the agency posted. 

The agency in its advisories advised the people on how to maintain their temperature and exposure to heat.

  1. Drink lots of water. 
  2. As much as possible, find air-conditioned places to cool off.
  3. Do not leave kids in a closed, parked vehicle. 
  4. ​For the outdoors, use a hat and sunshades. 
  5. Keep infants well-aerated and hydrated. 
  6. Wear light, breathable clothing to reduce the effect of high temperatures. 
  7. ​Reduce strenuous physical activity during peak heat hours (Stay indoors as much as possible between 12:00 noon and 4:00 pm) 
  8. Public awareness campaigns and education about heat stress risks and preventive measures are essential.

Since the beginning of the year, there has been an intense rise in heat across the country.
