The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Tuesday predicted a rise in the maximum or day temperature in Odisha. IMD's Bhubaneswar regional centre director, Manorama Mohanty informed that the maximum temperature is likely to rise by 3 to 5 degrees in Odisha.

“In the next five days, several isolated places in Odisha will experience thunderstorm activities with lightning. Apart from this, a heat wave is also likely in the next 24 hours due to high moisture content,” said Mohanty.

Mohanty further informed that the maximum temperature is likely to rise by 3 to 5 degrees in the next 2 to 3 days. This will lead to hot and humid conditions on May 28 and 29 and heat wave conditions are likely in Jharsuguda, Sundagarh, Sambalpur, Bolangir and Nuapada on May 29 and May 30.
