A daytime high of 38 degrees is forecast for Kyoto City, and 37 degrees for the cities of Aizuwakamatsu, Osaka, Tottori and Saga.

The temperature in central Tokyo is expected to hit 35 degrees, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA).

The JMA urged people to check the Heat Stress Index, which was based on temperature, humidity and solar radiation, and take necessary precautions.

Weather officials said that the warm, damp air and rising temperatures in northern Kyushu and Tohoku were expected to create unstable atmospheric conditions, bringing thunderstorms later on Monday.

Also warning of mudslides, flooding in low-lying areas, swollen rivers, lightning strikes and the strong gusts were expected.
