A heatwave occurs when the maximum and the minimum temperatures are unusually hot over a three-day period at a location.
In the hot weather, you need to take care of your health. WA can experience long periods of extreme heat, where the maximum and minimum temperatures are much hotter than usual.
Some people are more vulnerable in the hot weather and need to take extra care of their health to prevent heat related illnesses such as heat stress and heat stroke.
