Warmer Day & Night Temperature Likely In Odisha Till Jan 16
Bhubaneswar: Warmer day and night conditions will prevail in Odisha with day to day variation in night temperature depending on the wind flow as well as incursion of moisture from the Bay of Bengal till January 16.
Stating this in a release on Friday, the Centre for Environment and Climate (CEC) of Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan (SOA), said night time cooling over the state was mainly due to radiational cooling of the earth’s surface and flow of dry cold wind from North India which was prevailing till the fourth week of December.
There was a probability of decrease in night temperature from January 15 but it would be close to normal or little above normal as night temperature in North India could be higher.
Moreover, the day temperature would continue to be warmer and might vary from 32 to 34 degrees Celsius till the end of third week of January, it said.
