Rajasthan Weather

The Northern Plains in India have been continuously observing severe heat wave conditions with many parts observing maximum above the 45 degree mark. So much so that out of the 15 hottest places in the world yesterday, at least 10 of them are from India.

Hottest Places

Churu in Rajasthan was the second hottest city in the world with the maximum settling at 49.8 degrees Celsius while Sri Ganganagar stood third at 48.6 degrees Celsius.

Along with Rajasthan, Banda in Uttar Pradesh saw the maximum temperature settled at 47.4 degrees Celsius with Haryana’s Narnual observing its maximum temperature at a whopping 47.2 degrees Celsius.

Moreover, eight cities out of the ten hottest cities in the world are from the desert state of Rajasthan. Heat wave in Rajasthan continues to wreak havoc and no relief is expected.

Agartala was the rainiest city in the world and even after that, the Indian sub-continent continued to remain the hottest on the planet yesterday.

Yesterday, more than half the country saw heat wave conditions as most places saw the maximum temperatures settling above 45 degrees. The hills of North India also observed above normal temperatures during this time with maximums settling above 30 degrees in many pockets.

These sky high temperatures can be attributed to the absence of any weather system over both the hills and plains of North India for quite some time. Dry weather and bright sunshine have paved way to these hot weather conditions which will continue to be the same for at least some time now.
