Hyderabad is expected to experience an intense heatwave over the next four days, with temperatures reaching 44 degrees Celsius, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
The weather service has also issued an orange alert for many other districts in Telangana, in addition to Hyderabad.
A heatwave is declared by the IMD when the maximum temperature is at least 4.5 degrees Celsius higher than normal. A severe heatwave occurs when the deviation exceeds 6.4 degrees Celsius.
The IMD Hyderabad issued an orange alert because the maximum temperature in Hyderabad is expected to be 41-44 degrees Celsius until June 9, 2023.
Hyderabad is not the only district in Telangana experiencing extreme heat. Throughout the state, many other districts are likely to experience similar weather conditions over the next four days. Rising mercury levels necessitate increased awareness and preparedness among residents of these areas.
As Hyderabad braces for an intense heatwave in the coming days, it is critical to take the necessary precautions, particularly while steeping outside.
On Friday, Hyderabad had the hottest day of the summer, with temperatures reaching 43 degrees Celsius in some areas. Many places in Hyderabad experienced maximum temperatures ranging from 42 to 43 degrees Celsius, with districts experiencing temperatures as high as 46 degrees Celsius.
Due to the Telangana Formation Day public holiday, schools and offices were closed, resulting in fewer people coming out during peak heat hours. Between midday and 4 p.m., the downtown streets appeared vacant.
In Hyderabad, the maximum temperature reached 43 degrees Celsius in Khairatabad, Serilingampally, and Gachibowli. Temperatures in other regions, such as Charminar and Ramachandrapuram, ranged between 41.6 and 41.8 degrees Celsius. Districts such as Nalgonda,
