Brace for hotter days, temperature likely to rise in next few days

Bhubaneswar: Hotter days are ahead for Bhubaneswar as maximum temperature may touch 40 degree Celsius on April 2, 3 and 4, said the Regional Meteorological Centre here today.

The met centre also predicted that mercury is likely to increase significantly across the state.

“Due to prevailing dry conditions over major parts of the state and high solar insolation, further rise in maximum temperature (day temperature) likely by 2°C at a few places over some parts of interior Odisha during the next 48 hours and no large change thereafter over the state. 

Consequently, maximum temperature (day temperature) is likely to be between 38 to 40°C at many places over the districts of interior parts and between 36 to 38°C over the coastal districts of Odisha during the next 4 to 5 days,” it said.

As the relative humidity remains in the range of 50 to 70 per cent over coastal Odisha and between 30 to 50 per cent over interior districts of Odisha.

People are advised to take precautionary measure while going outside during daytime between 10 am and 3 pm, the Meteorological Centre said.
