Normal life in several parts of Odisha was adversely affected following a rise in the maximum temperature and humidity level on Thursday. Lack of rainfall activities triggered by Nor’westers is to be blamed for the unbearable heat and humid conditions in the State.
The IMD’s regional centre in Bhubaneswar today predicted that there will be no change as there will be a rise in the maximum temperature and humid conditions in the next three days.
As per the forecast, the maximum temperature is likely to rise by 2 to 3 degrees in several parts of the state in the next three days. People in coastal districts will also have to face problems due to humid conditions as well.
