IMD Predicts Heatwave Across India In April-May, With Above-Normal Temperatures

New Delhi: Brace for a torrid summer, India.

That was the message from India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Friday.

IMD predicted that temperatures across the country will rise abnormally, with heatwave conditions expected to hit parts of India in the months of April and May.

IMD senior scientist Dr Naresh Kumar said that while it is a bit early to comment exactly how brutal this summer will be, it is expected that temperatures will be above normal in April, while heatwave conditions are likely in April and May.

“We are expecting above-normal temperatures as we are approaching April. In April, we will experience heatwave conditions over the central part of the country,” Kumar said.

“May is the warmest month of the seasons and the country may experience heat waves over northwest and central India,” he said.

“As per our long-term predictions, there will be abnormal temperatures and heatwave conditions may prevail over the central part of the country for the next two-three months,” Kumar added.
