What’s Up with this Heat?

The hot weather is cyclical and every year around April/May, the heat is on.  But if the days seem warmer to you, it is because the temperatures are in the hundreds and the breeze doesn’t help. The heat wave won’t let up until Thursday when it is expected to rain in some parts of the country, but as News Five found out from Chief Met Officer Ronald Gordon, the sweltering weather condition is normal.

Ronald Gordon, Chief Meteorological Officer

“These are the type of temperatures we normally get around this time of the year. We are in the hottest part of the year for us in this country and the region, certainly around Central America, Yucatan Peninsula area. So typically, every May we get these types of heat waves across the country. So far, we have been experiencing temperatures in the triple digits – one hundred and four, one hundred and two degrees Fahrenheit in the inland areas – and in the lower nineties along some coastal areas of the country. This has been occurring since Sunday, we had the peak and we continue to have that type of conditions lasting today and will continue trough until tomorrow until we see some changes.”
