Hyderabad is now bracing itself for a heatwave; red alert issued for 15 districts

Hyderabad is bracing for a heatwave after experiencing mild temperatures in April and the first week of May. For the next seven days, the average maximum temperature in the city is expected to rise above 40 degrees Celsius.

The weather department has issued an orange alert for the city until Sunday, with daytime temperatures expected to range from 41 to 45 degrees Celsius.

The increased humidity is also expected to make nights uncomfortable. Similar situations are expected in other districts across the state, with orange alerts in effect.

In the meantime, the Telangana State Development Planning Society has declared a red alert for 15 districts – Jagtial, Karimnagar, Mancherial, Jayashankar Bhupalpally, Adilabad, Nirmal, Mulugu, Kumuram Bheem Asifabad, Bhadradri Kothagudem, Mahabubabad, Warangal, Nalgonda, Khammam, Suryapet, and Peddapalli. Maximum temperatures are expected to exceed 45 degrees Celsius in these areas.

The impact of Cyclone Mocha, which is expected to intensify into a very severe cyclonic storm over the southeast and adjoining areas of the Bay of Bengal, is being attributed for the heatwave in Telangana, including Hyderabad.

Unseasonal showers that provided some relief to the state are expected to end within the next week, exacerbating the heatwave.

The general public is advised to take necessary precautions to avoid the scorching heat, such as staying indoors during the peak daytime hours, drinking plenty of water, and wearing loose, light-coloured clothing.
