Residents attending their mandatory nucleic acid tests (NAT) over the next few days have been warned to take care as temperatures are likely to hit 35 degrees Celsius.

The Macao Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau (SMG) said that under the impact of a subtropical high pressure, the city has experienced “very hot” weather in recent days, adding that the scorching weather was expected to continue through Thursday.

The SMG noted that a broad trough of low pressure currently located in the central part of the South China Sea will gradually move towards the northern part of the sea and the coast of Guangdong province. The weather station predicted “alternating sunshine and rain” in Macao from Thursday, which was expected “to relieve the heat” during part of the daytime.

The observatory has issued its Yellow “very hot” weather alert for two consecutive days, adding that the high temperature was expected to continue in the coming days with increased cloud cover and some showers towards the weekend.

The SMG urged people to pay close attention to the latest weather announcements, and take the necessary rain gear, heatstroke prevention and Covid-19 prevention supplies when going to a NAT station this week.
