Ujjain : Day-time temperature in the city is gradually on the rise. The maximum day-time temperature in the holy city, which hitherto hovered between 28 and 29 degree Celsius, is now ranging between 35 and 37 degree Celsius.
In addition to a marked rise in temperature, the Government Jiwajirao Observatory officials say that the city is also witnessing low moisture content. Relatively higher temperatures and low moisture have added to the discomfort of general public. On Monday maximum temperature recorded was 37.5 degree Celsius and the minimum settled on 19.5. Also the maximum humidity level was recorded at 75 percent.
Officials say that the hot weather condition is due to the transitional month of October, resulting in pole change of the Sun. The climate is changing because of the gradual withdrawal of South-East monsoons and strengthening of the North-East monsoons, which are active between October and December, they said. Such transitional climate, characterised by a marked increase in day-time temperatures, is also present in other parts of the state. At the same time, the North-East monsoons are getting strengthened, said the observer.
