Relief from Scorching Heat on Horizon for Many States including MP

Several Indian states, including Telangana, Vidarbha, Marathwada, and parts of Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Uttar Pradesh, have been sweltering under above-normal temperatures, with highs reaching a scorching 43 degrees Celsius. The dry weather is expected to persist for another 1-2 days, with a possibility of further temperature increase, according to Skymet Weather.

However, there's good news on the horizon! Relief from the relentless heat is finally in sight. Skymet said pre-monsoon showers and thunderstorms are expected to bring much-needed respite to these regions over the next few days. This welcome change in weather will be driven by a confluence of factors. 

Cyclonic circulation is forecast to develop over MP

A cyclonic circulation is forecast to develop over Madhya Pradesh, while a trough will extend from interior Karnataka to east Madhya Pradesh. Additionally, an anti-cyclone over the West Central Bay of Bengal will contribute moisture to the system.

The weather activity is expected to be intermittent, continuing on and off until mid-April. This extended period of rain signifies a significant break from the ongoing heatwave, offering residents a reprieve for at least the next two weeks, likely until April 17th or 18th. So, for those yearning for cooler temperatures, the wait is almost over, said Skymet.

Heat wave warning

Meanwhile, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning for a potential heat wave in certain regions of east and peninsular India over the next two days. Additionally, the IMD forecasts intense rainfall and thunderstorms in the northeast region until April 9.

Heat wave conditions are expected in isolated pockets across Odisha, Gangetic West Bengal, Jharkhand, Vidarbha, north interior Karnataka, coastal Andhra Pradesh, as well as Yanam, Rayalaseema, and Telangana during next 2 days, according to the IMD.

Significant rainfall is predicted for parts of Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Kerala, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Odisha, and Gangetic West Bengal.

The IMD also notes that heat wave conditions are already prevalent in isolated areas of north interior Karnataka, Rayalaseema, coastal Andhra Pradesh, and Yanam.

The IMD forecasts scattered to widespread light and moderate rainfall or snowfall with isolated thunderstorms and lightning in sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim over the next seven days.
