Possible rise in temperatures across cities might lead to discomfort: NiMet
The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) on Sunday warned of a possible rise in temperatures in some cities, which might lead to thermal discomfort.
Its spokesman, Muntari Ibrahim, stated in Abuja that temperatures might rise above 40 degrees Celsius in the affected cities in the next 48 hours.
He listed states that might be affected as Kebbi, Sokoto, Zamfara, Taraba, and Adamawa, where temperatures might rise above 40 degrees Celsius.
Most northern states, including parts of Oyo, Kwara, FCT, Nasarawa, and Benue are expected to record temperatures between 35 degrees Celsius and 40 degrees Celsius, Ibrahim stated.
“Bauchi, Gombe, Borno, and Yola are at risk of experiencing high thermal discomfort.
“People in these locations should drink lots of fluid through this period,’’ he added.
Mr Ibrahim assured that NiMet would continue to update Nigerians accordingly.
