Bhubaneswar: 29/3/24:Hot and humid weather conditions are likely to prevail over some districts of Odisha during the next 4-5 days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) informed on Friday.

Consequently, maximum temperature (day temperature) is likely to be between 38 to 40°C at many places over the districts of interior parts and between 36 to 38°C over the coastal districts of Odisha during the next 4 to 5 days, the IMD said.

As per IMD forecast, the minimum temperature (night temperature) is likely to rise by 2-3°C during the next -to 5 days at many places over the districts of Odisha, consequently likely to be between 24 to 26°C, over most parts of coastal districts and between 21 to 23°C, over the interior districts of Odisha. Also, they were above normal by 2 to 4°C at most places over the districts of Odisha.

  • Yesterday’s Maximum Day Temperature: 39.8°C Paralakhemundi (Gajapati)
  • Yesterday’s Highest Minimum Temperature over Odisha: 26.8°C Puri

As per IMD, maximum temperatures observed appreciable rise at one or two places over the districts of South Odisha and no large change elsewhere over the districts of Odisha. They were above normal at a few places over the districts of Coastal Odisha at one or two places over the districts of Interior Odisha and normal elsewhere over the districts of Odisha.

Minimum temperatures observed appreciable rise at one or two places over the districts of North Coastal Odisha and no large change elsewhere over the districts of Odisha. They were markedly below normal at one or two places over the districts of Interior Odisha, appreciably above normal at a few places over the districts of Interior Odisha, and at one or two places over the districts of Coastal Odisha, above normal at a few places over the districts of Interior Odisha and one or two places over the districts of Coastal Odisha and normal at elsewhere over the districts of Odisha.
