Weather: Odisha May Get Relief From Severe Heat Wave; Weather Pattern Changes In Madhya Pradesh

New Delhi: Many districts of Odisha are reeling under heat wave conditions. Temperatures are in excess of 43 and 44 degrees. Baripada recorded 44.2 degrees which is 6 degrees above normal. Similarly, Chandbali saw 41 degrees, Keonjhargarh 41 degrees, Jharsuguda 44.2 degrees, Sambalpur 43 degrees, and Bhubaneswar recorded 42.7 degrees.

These above-normal temperatures can be attributed to continuous dry weather with bright sunshine and dry and hot winds blowing from the northwest direction.

According to the Skymet Weather, the situation is going to change from April 21 as rain and thunderstorm activities are expected to commence over the southern districts of Odisha. Places like Bolangir, Baripada, Gajapati, Ganjam and Koraput may witness light rain and thunderstorm on evening of April 20.

The north south trough which is at present extending from Vidarbha to interior Karnataka will gradually shift towards the east leading to rain activities over East India. Rain and thundershower activities will increase and may cover many parts by April 22nd.

There may be isolated heavy spells over southern parts of Odisha on April 23rd and 24. These pre monsoon thundershowers will certainly cool down the temperatures and there will be some relief from ongoing hot weather conditions.
