IMD has already forecasted high temperatures in several states and thunderstorms with lightning and rainfall activity can occur in the Northeast part of India till April 7, 2024; however, except for some places, most of the regions are likely to be affected by the increase in April, May, and June.

Heatwave Predictions

According to the weather department, harsh summer can be seen in many states from April to June. These states are Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and Telangana, Kerala, Telangana, and the western regions of Madhya Pradesh. Heatwaves can remain for eight days and are most likely to affect Kutch, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, and Andhra Pradesh this month.

Heatwave conditions occur when the temperature crosses more than 40 degrees Celsius. The weather department also issued an alert of high temperatures in Andaman Nicobar and Lakshadweep islands. Hot temperatures come when El Nino becomes active in the equatorial Pacific Ocean.

El Niño is a climate phenomenon characterised by unusual warming of the surface water in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. It significantly affects weather patterns and climate worldwide, and it also alters storm patterns in various regions. El Niño is a natural climate pattern that occurs every two to seven years.

What is El Nino Effect?

El Nino is a climate pattern that shows abnormal surface water warming in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. It has a major influence on climate patterns and weather. It also affects storm patterns in different parts of the world. El Nino is a natural climate pattern that occurs every two to seven years.

The opposite phase is called La Nina, which shows the cooling of sea surface water to normal water temperature in the same region. Due to the El Nino effect in the Pacific Ocean, many states in India can suffer from high temperature and humidity.
