India cheers as deadly heatwave gears up to vacate most parts

May 25, 2016 1:21 PM |

Heatwave in IndiaAs reiterated by Skymet Weather, heatwave pocket has shrunk its ambit significantly. At present, heatwave conditions are prevailing only over isolated pockets of Interior Odisha, Telangana and Coastal Andhra Pradesh.

As we progress further, we expect heatwave conditions vacating this region as well and abate in most parts of the country very soon.

However, mercury will continue to soar beyond 40-degree mark but will not amount to heatwave or severe heatwave conditions.

Heatwave in Northwest India

Day temperatures over Gujarat and South Rajasthan have witnessed a further drop on Tuesday on account of continuous flow of moist moderate southwesterly winds blowing from Arabian Sea.

Earlier, hot and dry westerly winds from Sindh and Baluchistan in Pakistan had increased the mercury significantly that had led to heatwave to severe heatwave conditions over entire Northwest India.

Further, we expect these winds to continue for another 4-5 days which will keep temperatures under check and severe heatwave conditions at bay. But several parts of Rajasthan will still record temperatures between 40°C and 45°C.

Meanwhile, northern plains of Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh will also continue to escape heatwave. Fairly widespread rain in last 48 hours had already abated the scorching heatwave from the region.

Though, temperatures will increase marginally during next few days but another spell of rains are approaching the region by May 29 or May 30, which will again dip the mercury.

Heatwave in Central and Peninsular India

At present, Telangana, Odisha and Coastal Andhra Pradesh is the only pocket to reel under the heatwave conditions with day maximums settling in mid 40s.

With 46.5°C, Titlagarh in Odisha continues to be the hottest city of the country for the third consecutive day.

However, relief is on the cards for the region that too very soon. Skymet Weather predicts scattered pre-Monsoon rain is likely to commence from May 27 or May 28. This will result in a dip in mercury initially and abatement of heatwave subsequently.

However, maximum temperatures over Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha region of Maharashtra, Odisha, Telangana, North Interior Karnataka and Rayaleesma will continue to settle in early 40s which will keep the weather hot.

Heatwave in East India

East India also continues to witness comfortable weather on account of on and off pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers for the last few days.

Initially, it was Cyclone Roanu that had impacted the weather and now, there are couple of troughs running across the region. These weather activities have prevented maximum temperatures from rising and will continue to do so.
