With heat wave like conditions gripping most parts of India, data given out by a US based weather website during the last 24 hours showed that six of the world’s hottest cities were from India itself.
On May 28, Chandrapur in Maharashtra recorded its day temperature at 47.8˚C, followed by Nagpur in Maharashtra 47.5˚C, Brahmapuri in Maharashtra 46.9˚C, Wardha in Maharashtra 46.5˚C, Adilabad in Telangana 46.3˚C and Banda in Uttar Pradesh 46.2˚C.
Even though monsoon season is around the corner, but most parts of the country are experiencing heat wave conditions with few pockets such as Vidarbha, Marathwada, Southeast Uttar Pradesh and Telangana suffering from extreme heat with maximum temperatures surpassing 47 degree Celsius.
Normally, the mounting temperatures are kept under a check over most parts of the country by the pre-Monsoon activities. However, this time most parts of the country are gearing up for even hotter weather and severe heat wave conditions.
The main reason for such extreme weather conditions is associated with the continuous dry weather conditions and the flow of hot winds from West and Northwest direction. Also, the absence of any Pre-Monsoon activity over most parts of Northwest, Central and East India, as well as parts of the South Peninsula, is enhancing such severe weather conditions.
Now in the coming three to four days as well, in the wake of complete dry weather, there will not be any relief from the ongoing heat wave conditions over Vidarbha, Telangana, Rayalaseema, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Interior Odisha and North Interior Karnataka.
Moreover, now a few more parts of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Odisha, Delhi, and Haryana may come under the influence of heat wave condition.
