It said the day temperatures will remain 40-44°C during this period.

The Met Office further said that sea breeze will remain cut-off and wind from northwest to north will dominate.

How can you beat the heat this summer?

Stay covered

Try to stay indoors, and if you need to be outside don’t spend extended amounts of time without shade. Keep your skin covered against the sun.

Wear light clothes

Wear linen, cotton, silk, or other breathable fabrics. Keep your clothing loose and breezy, so you don't feel suffocated in the humid heat.

Find shade

Look for a shade, find a tree.

Stay hydrated

Drinking more water is recommended.
