5 dead, heat wave warning issued in Maharashtra

The affected parts in Maharashtra are western Vidarbha, which includes Nagpur, Akola and Amaravati districts; Marathwada; middle Maharashtra and some parts of Konkan. "Pune's average temperature is 36-37 degrees Celsius but now it has crossed 40 degrees Celsius".

"Hot conditions, including heat waves, are likely to continue till Saturday (April 1), after which temperatures may drop by a degree or two", national weather forecast official said.

The town of Churu in Rajasthan was the hottest with a temperature of 42.4 degree Celsius. With mercury at 46.5°C, it is more than 7 degrees Celsius above normal for the city.

A team of IMD that visited the region confirmed that the rise was due to geographical conditions of the area, which is surrounded by rocky mountains.

"As predicted, the heat wave in Maharashtra has subsided with most of the regions reporting a minor rise in the day and night temperature", the Meteorological department said in a release.

Heat waves continued to shatter temperature records in many parts of west, central and north India even as the country recorded the first heat deaths of the season, very unusual in the month of March, on Thursday. This was followed after questions were raised over such high temperatures recorded despite Raigad being a coastal district of Maharashtra.

Searing weather is gripping large parts of the country, with temperatures soaring past 46 degrees C in parts of Maharashtra as uninterrupted solar radiation is taking its toll, but some rain-bearing clouds can cool the country by the end of this week.

"When the temperature (at Bhira) was reported to be 46.5 degrees Celsius, we realised that something is wrong as no other place nearby recorded so high a temperature", said S G Kamble, divisional in-charge of Regional Meteorological Department at Colaba in Mumbai. On Monday, Ahmedabad recorded a temperature of 42.8 degrees - the highest temperature recorded in that city since 2010, when it touched 43 degrees. "Government-run hospitals, primary health centres and district health officers have been categorically asked to sensitise people about "heat therapy" and avoiding exposure to the scorching sun", Sawant said.

The temperature in Dehradun as well as Srinagar has also been recorded much above the normal for the initial days of summer. We suspect that the hot winds on Tuesday afternoon could have raised the temperature.
