The Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet) recently issued a cautionary alert to residents, signaling an impending surge in temperatures throughout the nation between now and April.

With the sun’s trajectory shifting toward the equator, GMet anticipates a notable increase in temperatures, reaching its pinnacle on March 20, 2024. The populace is urged to prepare for scorching weather conditions in the days ahead, as the mercury is set to rise significantly.

This imminent spike in temperatures could pose substantial challenges to public health and well-being if not addressed proactively.
