Odisha Among Ten States To Be Hit By Heatwave Soon, Says IMD

New Delhi: After an unusually cool March, brace yourself for sweltering heat in the coming months. The summer season this year is expected to break records, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

North India is likely to witness a hot spell soon this year, with IMD saying that several parts of the country will witness a spike in temperature in the next five days. The IMD warned that there would be a gradual rise of two-four degrees Celsius over the next five days in the country. The IMD warning comes after the agency said that except for parts of the northwest and peninsular region, most parts of India are likely to witness above-normal maximum temperatures from April to June.

IMD Director General Mrutyunjay Mahapatra said, “A significantly higher number of heatwave days are predicted over parts of Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Punjab and Haryana.”


Thunderstorms and strong winds have been predicted over Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh in the next two days. “Thunderstorms with gusty winds are likely over Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh during the next two days and decrease thereafter,” the IMD advisory said.
