Pune, 27th February 2023: For the second year in a row, winter has transitioned directly into summer without any sign of spring in 19 districts of India, where dry conditions persist.

According to reports, temperatures have been above normal in most parts of the country, with some regions experiencing temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius. The lack of rainfall has also contributed to the worsening of the situation.

The Indian Meteorological Department has warned that the situation may persist for the next few weeks, with the possibility of isolated thunderstorms in some areas.

Farmers in affected areas are concerned about their crops, with some already suffering losses due to the drought-like conditions. The government has been urged to provide assistance to affected farmers. Meanwhile, officials have advised people to stay indoors during the hottest parts of the day, stay hydrated, and avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. The public has also been warned against starting fires, as the dry conditions increase the risk of wildfires.

The situation highlights the urgent need for increased efforts to address climate change and the impacts it has on vulnerable populations.
