Yesterday, temperatures were 4-5 degrees above average in various places in Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, and Tripura, and as many as 36 meteorological stations reported highs of 42 degrees Celsius.

IMD predicts that heat wave conditions will continue for the next three days in several areas of Gangetic West Bengal and Bihar. The hot weather has persisted in coastal Andhra Pradesh for four days and in Gangetic West Bengal for six days. As a result, Bengal’s Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has mandated that all educational facilities close on Saturday.

For the following two days, a heatwave is anticipated in several sections of coastal Andhra Pradesh as well as Prayagraj and other eastern regions of Uttar Pradesh. Maharashtra’s maximum temperatures are forecast to rise by 2-3 degrees, with many locations exceeding 42 degrees Celsius.

Even the Northeast is not exempt from the heat wave; yesterday, Agartala, the capital of Tripura, had a maximum temperature of 38 degrees Celsius, or almost 5 degrees above average. As a result, the state has mandated that all publicly funded and operated schools remain closed till April 23. Shillong in Meghalaya, Imphal in Manipur, and Guwahati in Assam have all seen temperatures that are 4-5 degrees above average.

India is preparing for a sweltering summer as high temperatures are being recorded at meteorological stations all around the nation. Maximum temperatures had already exceeded 40 degrees Celsius for three straight days in Delhi. 13 persons recently passed away in Maharashtra from heat stroke while taking part in a state award ceremony. The government has advised citizens to stay indoors during the hottest parts of the day and to stay hydrated to prevent heat-related illnesses as the heat wave conditions continue in many states.
