Temperature Droped: Odisha to Witness Rains from Today in Different Districts

After witnessing temperatures exceeding 35 degrees Celsius in certain parts of Odisha, the state is anticipated to experience a decline in mercury levels starting Friday. The India Meteorological Department has predicted light to moderate rainfall and thunderstorm activity in various regions of the state until February 28.

According to Umasankar Das, a scientist at the Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre, “Parts of the state will witness rainfall activity and cloudiness as dry westerly and north-easterly winds will interact with moisture-laden winds from the Bay of Bengal. A western disturbance is also active.”

While the IMD typically begins issuing day temperature forecasts in March with the onset of the summer season, sources suggest that the maximum temperature may decrease by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius due to the upcoming rainfall.

The regional Meteorological office has issued a warning for thunderstorms with lightning in one or two places in Cuttack and seven other districts on Friday. Sonepur recorded the highest temperature at 36.3 degrees Celsius on that day, followed by Bhubaneswar and Talcher at 36.2 degrees Celsius each, and Titilagarh and Boudh at 36 degrees Celsius each.

Meanwhile, the regional Met office mentioned that there will be no significant change in the night (minimum) temperature over the next four to five days.
