Pi News –
This week is starting with another scorching heatwave, with Monday’s heat wave helping to keep West Australians safe and sound in their cool homes or forcing them to spend some time soaking up the sun on the beach.
The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a three-day heatwave warning for large areas of WA, with maximum temperatures in the low to mid 40s and lows in the 20s to low 30s.
The heatwave situation is considered dire for Perth, but many are counting their blessings as other parts of the state have reached almost 50C.
The Gascoyne District has been warned of extreme temperatures for the Kimberley, Pilbara, North Interior, Central West, Lower West, South West, South Coast and Great South districts.
The bureau is advising West Aussies to find somewhere outside the heat, such as their homes, library, community center or shopping centre.
Other advice from the bureau includes:
- Close your windows and draw blinds, curtains or awnings at the beginning of the day to keep your home warm.
- Use fans or air conditioners for cooling.
The next heat wave warning will be issued on January 30 at 14:00 WST.
WA isn’t the only state feeling the heat, with heat wave warnings also issued for New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory on Monday.
