Heat wave is the result of the absence of any significant weather activities over a place along with the combined effect of being swept by dry winds. It is an accumulated effect of hot weather conditions over a particular region. Prolonged spells of heat wave conditions are not seen over extreme South and North India in May as one after the other weather systems keep approaching the region which acts against the heat accumulation.
Central India however does not observes frequent systems affecting the region. At present, heat wave conditions are continuing over several parts of Central India like Brahmapuri which is seeing day temperature settle beyond 45 degrees Celsius in the last 3 days. Khargone, Adilabad, Amravati, Ramagundam, Parbhani, Banda and Nowgong too are witnessing similar temperatures since the last past few days.
The reason for this can be attributed to dry and hot northerly winds. No relief from such weather is expected in the next 4 to 5 days. Monsoon is just around the corner, with delay of about a couple of days. Otherwise, with Monsoon featuring by the start of June, heat wave usually retreats from the area by this time.
