HYDERABAD: The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued warnings of heat wave conditions in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh for two days, which would only mean no respite for the public from the sweltering temperatures.

Hyderabad Meteorological Centre Scientist A Sravani on Tuesday said that heatwave conditions were expected in Jayashankar Bhupalpally, Mulugu, Medak, Adilabad, Nirmal, Hanumakonda, Bhadradri Kothagudem and Khammam districts due to continously rising temperatures. The normal temperature during this time should be between 36-38 Degrees Celsius. But, it is reaching 40-41 Degrees Celsius across the state and there is a possibility of similar weather in the next 24 hours.

The scientist further said that there was a trough present in South Chhattisgarh. For the last 24 hours, the southwesterly and northwesterly winds are prevailing in the entire state. The same situation will continue in the next 24 hours, especially in the north. Westerly winds are blowing in the southern part. Heatwave conditions are expected to prevail in the Bhadradri Kothagudem and Khammam districts in Telangana. Gusty winds, accompanied by thunder and lightning, will blow in the northern and eastern parts of Telangana while rains with thunder and lightning are likely to occur in the central part.

On the other hand, temperatures of 38-40 Degrees Celsius are likely to be recorded in Hyderabad for two more days. After that, the head will subside and thunderstorms are expected in the evening across Telangana, Sravani said. Meanwhile, moderate rainfall is expected in southern parts of some districts in Andhra Pradesh while thunderstorms and gusty winds are likely to continue for the next 2-3 days. Moderate rainfall is expected in the southern parts of Nellore and Chittoor districts in Andhra pradesh. The coastal Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema are expecting monsoonal rain in the next 2-3 days.

‘’Temperature is expected to subside leading to normal weather conditions. Also, thunderstorm activity is expected in the north coastal Andhra Pradesh and parts of Rayalaseema. The thunderstorm and gusty winds will prevail for the next three days. Heatwave conditions will be subsiding tomorrow onwards because already the monsoonal onset will be there in the southern parts of Andhra Pradesh. In the next 2-3 days, it will reach Rayalaseema and South coastal Andhra Pradesh,’’ the scientist informed.

Taking to Twitter, T Balaji, popularly known as ‘Telangana Weatherman’, said that cyclones occurring in Arabian sea during the second week of June always hampers monsoon onset in Telangana. He cited the examples of cyclone Nanauk in 2014, cyclone Vayu (2019) and cyclone Biporjoy (2023). With this, completely dry, hot and sunny weather is expected in the entire Telangana for the next one week and no rains are expected at least for the next 5-7 days, he said, adding that the onset of monsoon will be expected only after June 21, 2023.
