While summer is still two weeks away, Narromine is expected to get a taste of it at the end of this week with temperatures forecast to reach heatwave-like conditions.
Waging a war on sun damage aquatic manager Val Bollard and Cancer Council’s Camilla Thompson.
The forecast for Thursday and Friday is a sweltering 41 and 42 degrees, with minimum temperatures being 16 and 18 respectively, not giving residents much respite.
The temperature was expected to reach 32 on Tuesday 32 and then there will be a significant increase on Wednesday with temperatures expected to reach a maximum of 37 degrees.
Temperatures will cool slightly at the weekend with a maximum of 32 for Saturday and 31 for Sunday being forecast.
Cancer Council’s Camilla Thompson said people needed to be smart in the heat.
“It’s ideal if you can avoid being out in the sun during peak UV times. During summer that’s about 11am to 3pm. Other than that you can slip on a sleeved and collared shirt, slap on a wide-brimmed hat, slop on some broad spectrum sunscreen, seek shade or shelter and slide on some sunnies, five simple steps for being sun safe,” she said.
“Make sure you keep hydrated with plenty of water and reapply sunscreen every two hours, or more if you’re sweating a lot or going in and out of the water.”
Mrs Thompson said if you’re in doubt you could check out when’s the best time to go outside through the Cancer Council app.
“You can check the UV level on the Cancer Council SunSmart app on your iPhone or android, anything over three means you should be using a sun protection method to reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.”
In a number of towns throughout the Orana region, temperatures will exceed 40 degrees, such as Coonamble on Friday where a maximum of 42 is expected while 39 is also forecast for Thursday.
In Cobar, tops of 41 degrees are forecast for Thursday and Friday, with Friday also having a minimum of 26 degrees.
Nyngan is expected to be the hottest centre in the region, with 41 and 43 degrees forecast for Thursday and Friday respectively.
In Dubbo and throughout the region, sunny conditions are expected all week with a five per cent chance of less than a millimetre of rain forecast for every day.
The hot and dry conditions should allow farmers to get back into harvest, after rain at the end of last week caused another delay.
