The entire country has been soaked by heat, with temperatures rising 40 degrees Celsius in some parts. The Meteorological Department, on the other hand, has offered some positive news for Mumbai and Bangalore.
On Wednesday, the Indian Meteorological Department issued a yellow alert for Mumbai and Thane. The IMD predicts thunder, lightning, and gusty winds in isolated regions, as well as light to moderate rain.
The IMD authorities have stated that rain is predicted in the evening owing to westerlies coming in from the sea. The IMD has also predicted light to moderate rain with thunder and lightning on Thursday, with the weather clearing up by Friday.
The month of April has already seen considerable rain showers with 15mm of rainfall busting the all-time monthly record on April 13 by IMD’s Santacruz observatory.
The next 4-5 days are expected to bring moderate to heavy rain, mostly during the evening and early morning hours, to Banglore City and other parts of the state, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
The India Meteorological Department has also issued a yellow alert for the city through April 29 because rain is expected. Rain showers are expected to fall in the city and other parts of south-central Karnataka, giving a break to the city’s high temperatures.
The city is expected to see a range of temperatures on Wednesday and the next three to four days, with the peak forecast to be about 33 degrees Celsius and the lowest likely to be near 22.
The extreme heat persisted on Monday even though Delhi’s peak temperature increased little. The temperature may rise more in the coming days, but the meteorological office anticipates another bout of rain in Delhi-NCR beginning on Thursday, which would likely cool things down.
