Temperatures to rise further in MP, Vidarbha, Rajasthan, Gujarat; heatwave to prevail

May 19, 2018 10:35 AM |


Updated on May 19: The heatwave conditions continue to grip most of the central parts of the country on the last day as well. Temperatures in most parts of Vidarbha, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and parts of Gujarat are settling well above the 45-degree mark.

The reason for the rising mercury levels over all these aforesaid regions can be associated with the hot northwesterly winds that are blowing over Central India from the hot regions of Sindh and Balochistan in Pakistan. Additionally, the hotter desert region of Rajasthan is also influencing the rise in the maximums.

On Friday, Chandrapur recorded the maximum temperatures at a sizzling 47.4ºC, Damoh 46ºC, Bramhapuri 45.6ºC, Khajuraho 45.6ºC, Bundi 45.6ºC, Nagpur 45.5ºC, Chittorgarh 45.2ºC, and Kandla recorded the daytime high at 45ºC.


In addition to this, heatwave like conditions also prevailed in Akola with maximum temperature at 44.6ºC, Tikamgarh 44.2ºC, Sheopur 44.4ºC, and Yeotmal recorded the daytime high at 44.5ºC.

As per Skymet Weather, as of now, no relief is expected from the heatwave conditions over all these regions. In fact, the temperatures may witness a further rise.

Updated on May 18: After a short break, heatwave conditions have once again gripped many parts of Vidarbha along with the isolated pockets of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Gujarat. The temperatures that dipped by a few notches in the recent days once again rose and settled over 45-degree mark in most parts.

The reason for the abatement of the heatwave for a short duration was scattered rains that occurred in the last 48 hours over Vidarbha and the central parts of Rajasthan.

On Thursday, Chandrapur recorded the daytime high at a sizzling 47.6ºC, Bramhapuri 46.7ºC, Bundi 46.4ºC, Phalodi 45.6ºC, Wardha 45.5ºC, Khargone 45.5ºC, Kandla 45.2ºC, and Sawai Madhopur 45.2ºC.

On the other hand, stations like Amravati, Akola, Jalgaon, Nagpur, Ahmedabad, Surendranagar, Rajkot, Nowgong, Khajuraho, Bikaner, and Sheopur reeled under heatwave like conditions.

The reason for the rise in the temperature profile can be associated with the return of hot and dry northwesterly winds. These winds are blowing over the central parts of the country from Sindh and Balochistan, which are already reeling under extremely hot weather. These winds are mainly affecting parts of West and South Rajasthan, North Gujarat, West Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha.

As of now also, the temperatures of all the above-mentioned regions would continue to remain very high. Thus, heatwave conditions would continue to grip many parts of Vidarbha and isolated pockets of Gujarat, Rajasthan and West Madhya Pradesh.

Remaining districts may also observe heatwave like conditions with the temperatures settling above 40 degrees Celsius and thus, not much relief is anticipated for the next few days.
