IMD Rajasthan Heatwave

The Regional Meteorological Centre issued a yellow alert for a heatwave from May 7 to 10 on Monday and mentioned the possibility of loo following the hot weather conditions in the state.

“The average temperature in most areas of Rajasthan is recorded at more than 40°C. The highest 42.2 was recorded in Phalodi. In the next 48 hours, in most parts of Rajasthan, the average temperature will increase by 2-4 degrees,” said Radheshyam Sharma, director of the Jaipur Meteorological Centre.

“In Rajasthan, the temperature will be 44-45 °C. There is a possibility of heatwaves and loo. From May 7 to 10, there will be a heatwave. From May 10-11, there is a possibility of light rain in some regions. From May 7 to 10, IMD Jaipur has issued a yellow alert for heatwave,” he added.

People are resorting to drinking sugarcane juice and using umbrellas to tackle the extreme heat.

Earlier, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said that most parts of the country are likely to record above-normal maximum temperatures in the month of May.

The IMD, however, stated that some parts of northwest and central India and adjoining areas of northeast peninsular India are likely to record normal to below-normal maximum temperatures.

Normally, heat wave prevails over the northern plains, central India and adjoining areas of peninsular India for about three days in May, the IMD said.

The weather department said that the number of heatwave days is likely to be above normal by about five to eight days over south Rajasthan, west Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha, Marathwada and Gujarat region and two to four days over remaining parts of Rajasthan, east Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and some parts of Chhattisgarh, interior Odisha, Gangetic West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, north interior Karnataka and Telangana and isolated pockets of north Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh.
