- The maps provided by the Pilot Heatwave Forecast will reduce severity level or remove the indication of heatwave before the heatwave ends. This occurs because the maps are calculated across a three-day period. If the temperature is lower on the last day(s) then the map will indicate a lower risk despite unusually hot conditions being present for the first day or two.
Users are strongly recommended to monitor actual temperature forecasts for their location to understand when cooler conditions are expected to commence and therefore when the heatwave will finish.
