Odisha : Heat Wave to Continue Till Tomorrow


Bhubaneswar: While western Odisha is reeling under heat wave, the Met division today said heavy heat wave conditions to roasted the coastal belt would retain till next 24 hours.

Dr Sarat Chandra Sahu, Director, Meteorological Center, Bhubaneswar, said heat wave conditions would proceed in interior Odisha today.

While mercury soared to 47.5 degree Celsius in Titilagarh yesterday, the highest temperature recorded in the state this year, temperature went up steeply in coastal district.

“As the wind has changed its direction and is flowing from the west and north-west direction in the upper air at an increased speed, there is a sudden rise in temperature. As per the model indicator, there will be no change in the weather in interior Odisha while temperature would soar in coastal Odisha as wind flow from the sea towards the surface area would be obstructed by the north-westerly wind,” Sahu said.
