Nagpur: After a few spells of thunderstorm and light rains, Nagpur is once again reeling under heat wave conditions with maximum temperature soaring. The city recorded a maximum temperature of 45.0 degrees Celsius on Thursday. The mercury has been rising in the city for the last couple of days and the temperatures are likely to remain high till the weekend.

On Thursday, even the minimum temperature was on the higher side as the city recorded the night temperature above 29 degrees Celsius. This summer, in Nagpur, the mercury crossed the 45 degrees mark four times – May 14 (45.4 degrees Celsius), May 15 (45.1 degrees Celsius), April 29 (45.2 degrees Celsius) and now, on June 2.

Chandrapur recorded the highest maximum temperature in Vidarbha with 46.8 degrees Celsius on Thursday. Whereas Amravati (44.0degrees Celsius), Brahmapuri (45.3 degrees Celsius), Gondia (44.8 degrees Celsius) and Wardha (45.4 degrees Celsius)crossed the 44 degrees Celsius mark on Thursday.

The people will not be getting any relief soon from this scorching summer as the Weather Department has predicted that the winds that bring monsoon are weak in the region and also, an anticyclone formation at 500 mb is causing delay in the arrival of monsoon in Vidarbha.

According to the Weather Department, the monsoon will arrive in Vidarbha around June 13-15, whereas it will arrive in Nagpur around June 18. The Weather Department also advised the farmers that they should delay their sowing process this time as the first spell of monsoon rain will be of short span and thereafter, the regular monsoon rain will be delayed by two weeks.
