By Horace Palacio: Belizeans are gearing up for another scorching day as a heatwave grips the nation, prompting the National Meteorological Service to issue a heat advisory. Temperatures are expected to soar, particularly in inland regions, with highs reaching 97 degrees Fahrenheit (33 degrees Celsius) or more.

The 24-hour forecast predicts sunny skies interspersed with cloudy periods, but no rainfall is expected. Coastal areas will experience slightly milder temperatures, but the heat will be most intense inland, reaching as high as 101 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius).

Health officials are urging residents, especially those inland, to take extra precautions during this heatwave. Staying hydrated, avoiding strenuous outdoor activities during the hottest parts of the day, and seeking shade are crucial to preventing heat-related illnesses.

Marine conditions are expected to be moderate, with winds blowing from the east at 10-20 knots and waves reaching 4-6 feet.

The sweltering conditions are expected to persist into Monday and Monday night, with similar weather patterns.
