Heat Wave Across India

Three days back light rain and thunderstorm activity with dust storm was observed in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and West Uttar Pradesh. These weather activities pulled down the temperatures marginally in the region to give some relief from the heat. The national capital Delhi has however been witnessing heat wave like conditions and the temperatures are soaring, with maximum settling close to 43 degrees yesterday.

On April 26, Khargone in Madhya Pradesh was the hottest city in the country with the day temperature settling at a sizzling 46.6 degrees Celsius while Chandrapur in Maharashtra saw the maximum settle at 45.6 degrees.

According to meteorologists at Skymet, the day temperatures are expected to touch or go beyond 45 degrees at many places in Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha in the next 2-3 days. While, maximums in parts of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, interior Odisha and Telangana would either touch 40 or settle beyond the mark. Delhi too is likely to face this unbearable heat.

In the absence of any weather activity and bright clear sky, Delhi might see the maximum soaring to touch 43 degrees Celsius. Parts of Haryana like Sirsa, Bhiwani, Fatehabad and Hisar would get to witness heat wave like conditions. Sri Ganganagar, Churu, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Barmer, Nagaur and Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan would face similar weather conditions. Gujarat too would be seeing the day temperature settling at an extremely uncomfortable level of 44 degrees Celsius.

Khargone, Khandwa, Ujjain, Betul, Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh would also witness heat wave type conditions. Vidarbha as usual is going to remain hot and dry for the next 2-3 days. Places like Akola, Amravati, Nagpur, Chandrapur, Jalgaon, Malegaon would see a rising trend in the mercury. Marathwada regions like Hingoli, Jalna and Telangana areas adjacent to Vidarbha will be observing severe heat wave conditions.

Since there is no weather activity for the coming three to four days, hot weather will be at it's peak in almost the entire country. People are therefore advised to take proper care and help themselves with ample amount of fluid.
