According to weather forecaster Lorie Dela Cruz, Metro Manila’s heat index peaked at 42°C. It was recorded at 1:50 pm at the Science Garden, Quezon City.  The actual temperature peaked at 35.2°C.

Dela Cruz added that we can only expect warmer days to come in the remaining days of April.

While Metro Manila recorded a higher temperature of 35.8°C yesterday, today’s heat index indicates higher levels of humidity. This is what makes people more prone to succumbing to heat stress.

Dela Cruz reminded people to stay indoors from 12 noon until 4 pm in order to avoid the worst of the heat.
