Heatwave to abate India 1

Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have been observing hot weather conditions, particularly during the day time.

Moreover, due to continuous flow of northwesterly winds, temperatures are increasing day by day. For instance Delhi’s Palam Observatory recorded 40.2˚C as the day temperature yesterday.

According to the forecast by meteorologists at Skymet, in the next 24 to 48 hours, most parts of Delhi along with its adjoining areas of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh may face heat wave conditions. Similar conditions are likely to prevail in Rajasthan, South West Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, isolated parts of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha during this period.

The rise in temperatures can be attributed to the absence of any significant rain bearing weather system. This condition will continue to prevail in North and Central India for at least a week.

Day temperatures in these states which are already above 40.0˚C, may reach up to 45.0˚C and cause heat wave condition in isolated pockets. This heat is likely to cause unbearable weather conditions in some areas.

Yesterday, Phalodi recorded its maximum temperature at 44˚C, which is the highest of the season so far. Other places that recorded almost similar temperatures  were Barmer 43.8˚C, Khargone 43.5˚C, Jaisalmer 43.0˚C, Kandla 42.8˚C, Bikaner 42.6˚C, Akola and Banda 42.4˚C, Brahmapuri 42.3˚C and Parbhani 42.1˚C.
