Not yet 9.00am and it is already 31°C and climbing. Ordinarily, there would still be two weeks to go until our winter season ends and the long hot days of summer begin, but for the past few days, it has been horrendously hot. The heatwave is expected to continue today and tomorrow and hopefully, by Sunday it will start to disperse.
Unbearably hot yesterday 34°C at 10.30am, over 37°C by 2.30pm and 40°C by 4.00pm in Chayofa. However, others further up the mountain complained it was even hotter – phew! The wind gusted from time to time but it didn’t have much effect, as the air was so hot.
