Unusual Hot Weather in Perlis...

Date: 9th May 2011 (Monday)
For the past two days, the weather in Perlis is unusually hot and humid. It gets so stuffy...
You tend to sweat a lot and staying inside buildings makes you uncomfortable.. There's not much wind and the temperature soars to above 35 degrees Celsius at most of the time.
Today's school assembly in SMK Derma was evident that the students were restless in the school hall due to the hot temperature and no air conditioning available. Everybody was standing uneasy and of course sweating. Luckily, the Senior Assistant, Mr Shaharim Saad, was sporting enough to let the students sit on the floor. It helps and nobody fainted...
It is worst at night..  Last night was terrible that you can't even sleep well... My children slept with their shirts off.
Air condition rooms didn't help much though because you still sweat in them. Small children only have their shorts on. Mr Lee's son was even worse. He took off everything, despite having the air condition on !!!
A check with my friends in Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam too was similar in condition. Temperature there was 36 or 37 degrees C yesterday.

My visit to Gunung Jerai last Saturday too had the same experience, in terms of temperature.  I did realize that it wasn't that "cool" compare to the last time I was there. The temperature was somewhat in the range of 25 to 27 degrees C. It should have been less than 24 degrees C up there... The last time I visited Gunung Jerai in 1983, I had my sweater on. This time, I don't have to put anything on...

A check with the Meteorological Department of Malaysia says that there will be NO rain this week. Not until next Sunday. The temperature is expected to rise to 36 degrees C. It will be HOT!!!

Have a nice hot day.......
