Hot climate to prevail in Odisha till Oct 8

Bhubaneswar: Though the southwest monsoon has already started to withdraw from the eastern parts of the country, high temperature and hot climate will continue to give a tough time to people of Odisha till October 8, sources from the meteorological department said.

“After the end of monsoon season, due to divergence in lower level of atmosphere, air from upper atmosphere is dragged down and resulted rise in temperature,” Bhubaneswar Regional Meteorological Centre’s former director Sarat Sahu said.

Sahu further said that as thunderstorm activities are not so prevalent during this year’s monsoon withdrawal, it is helping in the rise of temperature.

On the other hand, the meteorological department has predicted that there is a likelihood of formation of a low pressure system in Southwest and Central Bay of Bengal by October 8 or 9.
