Heat wave may last until September

By V. Shankar Ganesh and Rozanna Latiff KUALA LUMPUR - The current heat wave and dry weather enveloping many parts of the country is expected to continue at least until September.The Malaysian Meteorological Department forecasting director Saw Bun Liong said the nation was experiencing a combination of weather factors that had led to the current hot weather. He said the annual southwest monsoon usually caused hot and dry weather but the arrival of tropical storm Aere in the Philippines and the low pressure system in the Indian Ocean were contributing to higher temperatures. Although the heat wave may continue, Saw said the worst might be over as Aere was now moving north. Temperatures this month reached a high of 36.2ºC last Friday, recorded in Subang while the temperature here reached 36ºC yesterday.
