Central Myanmar, Delta expect slight rise in temperatures later this month

In central Myanmar and the delta region, temperature is forecasted to rise slightly by about one degree on 28-29 April, said Director U Hla Tun of the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology.
Typically, the temperature gets higher after Thingyan, and it is generally forecasted that the climate will still be hot until May in some areas.
“The possibility of temperature increase will be in central Myanmar, the delta region, Bago, Yangon, Ayeyarwady, Sagaing and Mandalay regions. It is forecasted that it will increase by about 1 degree on 28 and 29 April in these areas. It is usual for the temperature to get higher after Thingyan every year. Generally, it is expected to be hot in some areas until May because it doesn’t rain. The temperature will be higher when it doesn’t rain and will decrease back when there is the possibility of rain. It is usual in summer that the temperature rises and falls,” said U Hla Tun.
The day temperatures in the past 24 hours were 3-4 degrees Celsius higher than April’s average temperature in Sagaing Region, Mandalay Region, Magway Region and Shan State, 2 degrees Celsius higher than April’s average temperature in Taninthayi Region, Kachin State and Mon State, and stayed at April’s average temperature in the remaining regions and states.
Unusual day temperatures on 23 April were 45.9 degrees Celsius in Chauk, 44.7 degrees Celsius in NyaungU, 44 degrees Celsius in Aunglan, 43.7 degrees Celsius in Myinmu, 43.6 degrees Celsius in Monywa, Myingyan and Magway, 43.5 degrees Celsius in TadaU (aviation weather) and Pakokku and 43.3 degrees Celsius in Mandalay, according to DMH’s data.
“In Myanmar, Chauk is located in the dry zone, so it is hot. Based on current temperatures in different cities, Chauk is the hottest,” he said.
It is forecasted that there is no possibility of rain until the end of April in central Myanmar and the delta region, he said.
He added that the Ministry of Health has issued instructions on how to protect from the heat and that the public needs to follow them. He urged the public to reside in the shady area between 11 am and 3 pm as it is the hottest period of the day. — MT/ZS/Ed
