Heat wave conditions in isolated places expected over North-West after April 15

NEW DELHI: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast a drop in maximum temperatures of about 2 degrees Celsius across sections of northwest India during the next 24 hours due to the presence of a western disturbance, followed by a rise of 2-4 degrees Celsius over most of northwest India.

On Wednesday, the IMD forecasted heat waves in isolated pockets across east Madhya Pradesh on April 16 and 17, Bihar on April 14, Jharkhand until April 15, west Rajasthan from April 15 to 17, Gujarat from April 15 to 17, Haryana-Delhi, west Uttar Pradesh, east Rajasthan, and west Madhya Pradesh on April 16 and 17, and Punjab on April 17.

Maximum temperatures are expected to rise by roughly 2 degrees Celsius throughout most of central India during the next two days, with no notable change expected over the next two days.

Maximum temperatures in Gujarat are expected to rise by 2-3 degrees Celsius during the next three days, but maximum temperatures in the rest of the country are unlikely to vary significantly.

The highest maximum temperature was 44 degrees Celsius in Jharsiguda, Odisha, on Wednesday, despite maximum temperatures falling by about 2-3 degrees Celsius in parts of Rajasthan, west Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi, and west Uttar Pradesh over the past 24-hours, resulting in the abatement of heat wave conditions in these areas, according to the IMD.

In isolated pockets across Punjab, heat waves to severe heat wave conditions were recorded; heat wave conditions were also observed in some areas of Himachal Pradesh; and in isolated pockets over Jammu division, east Uttar Pradesh, east Madhya Pradesh, northwest Rajasthan, and Jharkhand.
