Unrelenting Heatwave

Maharashtra is experiencing a heat wave and Pune is no exception with the mercury levels touching an UNPRECEDENTED 42.1 degrees for this season on Thursday. This was THE THIRD HIGHEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED by the Met department in the city for April, the highest instance being 43.3 degrees on April 30, 1897. There will be no reprieve for the citizens in the coming days with the met officers forecasting a steady rise in temperature. The heat wave can be attributed to the northerly winds which were responsible for hot dry air advection. On Wednesday, Akola recorded 45.3 degrees, the highest in the country, followed by Nagpur recording 44.6 degrees. On Thursday, the state saw most of the districts record temperatures above 40 degrees
