With a sharp decline in the Nor-wester rains, people in several parts of Odisha are now experiencing sweltering heat and humid conditions. The sudden rise in maximum (day) temperature has adversely affected normal life across the state.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted a rise in the maximum temperature by two to three degrees in the next two days.

The Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) office today issued an advisory in view of the IMD Bhubaneswar Regional Centre’s forecast. As per the IMD, the day temperature is likely to be 40 degree Celsius or above at a few places over the districts of the state during next four to five days.

Hot and discomfort weather likely during this period, tweeted SRC.

“There would be steady increase in day temperature in various districts. People are advised to stay indoors during peak hours and not go outside unless absolutely necessary,” tweeted the SRC.
