IMD issues heatwave warning for parts THESE states

INDIA: Over the next three to four days, the India Meteorological Department warned that there could be heatwave conditions in some areas of Gangetic West Bengal, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, and Bihar. 

The Meteorological office forecast above-average maximum temperatures for the majority of the nation from April to June, with the exception of some areas of the northwest and the peninsular regions. In the majority of central, eastern, and northwest India, days with above-normal temperatures are anticipated.

The IMD predicts that isolated areas of Gangetic West Bengal will likely experience heatwave conditions through Monday (April 17), as will northern coastal Andhra Pradesh and Odisha through Saturday (April 15), and Bihar from April 15 to April 17. At the moment, the maximum temperatures across central and northern India's peninsula vary from 40 to 42 degrees Celsius. 

The weather service reported that in several areas of the western Himalayan region, northeast India, West Bengal, Sikkim, Odisha, coastal Andhra Pradesh, and Kerala, maximum temperatures are three to five notches above average. When a station's maximum temperature exceeds 40 degrees Celsius in the plains, 37 degrees in coastal areas, and 30 degrees in hilly areas, and the difference from normal is at least 4.5 degrees, a heat wave is declared.

India had the warmest February since records have been kept, which was in the year 2023. But March's above-average precipitation helped to keep temperatures in control. It was the third warmest and driest March in 121 years in 2022. The third-warmest April in the nation since 1901 also occurred in this year.
