A Level 1 heatwave warning is issued when temperatures at a location are between 35 and 37 degrees Celcius for three consecutive days.

These are the areas under the Level 1 heatwave alert:

  • Perlis
  • Langkawi
  • Kubang Pasu
  • Kota Setar
  • Pokok Sena

Over in Sabah, Beaufort also receives the Level 1 heatwave warning.

The country, especially the northern part of the Peninsular, is seeing the end of the northeast monsoon in March and the start of the El Nino phenomenon.
