The Nigerian Metrological Agency (NiMet) has alerted about a high chance of a possible rise in temperatures across most northern cities in Nigeria.
The general manager, public relations, NiMet, Muntari Ibrahim, disclosed this in a weather alert by the agency.
Also, the agency disclosed that most parts of the northern states and parts of Niger and Kwara in the central zone are expected to experience temperatures greater than 40°C.
Few places in the south, including parts of Oyo, Ogun, Osun and Ekiti, are expected to record temperatures between 35°C and 40°C.
“There are chances of high thermal discomfort in parts of Kebbi, Dutse, Bauchi and Jalingo. Other areas may experience cold in the morning hours,” the statement noted.
NiMet warned against a heat stroke, sunstroke, muscle cramp and fatigue and called on Nigerians to stay hydrated.
