Gulu City Residents Endure Relentless Hot Nights

Residents of Gulu City and its suburbs have endured two straight weeks of high temperatures at night. Temperatures have exceeded 23 degrees Celsius for a sixth straight night.

On Friday, the temperature was 25 degrees high. There is also no distinction between day and night.

Despite the high night temperatures, meteorologists say northern Uganda and other parts of the country are not experiencing heatwaves.

According to George William Omony, a meteorologist working with Uganda National Meteorological Authority, the current increase in temperatures is due to the El Niño phenomenon.

Omony explained that due to the El Niño phenomenon, a warm water pool in the eastern Pacific Ocean radiates heat into the air, leading to hotter weather across much of the globe. He says forecasts indicate that temperature will soon drop.
