Why is it so hot in three or four days?
Alok Kumar, who visited his home in Muzaffarpur, Bihar on Holi, says the same thing. According to him, the weather was fine four days before Holi. The fan didn’t feel that way. But suddenly the heat has increased so much that the fans have to run at full speed. Delhi is worse than Uttarakhand and Bihar. Mercury is rising so fast in Delhi NCR that there may be an opportunity to remove the cooler from next week.
The heat meter in Delhi was 36.1 on Thursday, then on Friday it was 35.7 on Holi day. The meteorological department has not announced any relief next week. The heat has intensified across northern India, including Uttarakhand, Bihar, UP and Delhi. All this happened in the last three or four days. The sweetness of spring is lost in the cool warm air.
In March, the snow in Badrinath began to melt rapidly
The effect of this change in temperature is being seen as far as Badrinath Dham. The snow that had remained until April before the doors opened has begun to melt faster. This time the doors are opening on May 8. Heat is being felt up to upper areas like Chamoli, Rudraprayag. This is a sudden increase in Taman after light rains on March 14.
Even in the cities of Uttar Pradesh, the heat has increased for the last three-four days.
The same is true of many cities in Uttar Pradesh, including Lucknow. The city of Bhadohi, located between Varanasi and Prayagraj, has also witnessed a sudden rise in temperature. Vinay Kumar Srivastava, 75, says, “It used to be a bit cold on Holi. We would not water anyone in the morning and save them. But this time the weather is very different. A couple of days ago we used to cover the blankets and now it is getting hot in the sheets too. The weather has changed. ‘ According to Yogesh Bhadauria, a journalist from Navbharat Times.com who works from home in Etawah district, the temperature in the city has risen sharply in the last four to five days. It wasn’t usually hot these days. The city’s temperature used to be in balance but the mercury is already touching 35 to 37 degrees.
What environmentalists say
What is the cause of this change in weather? According to Chandi Prasad Bhatt, a well-known environmental scientist from Uttarakhand, the rise in temperature in the mountains after Holi is a normal process of the weather. He says one of the reasons for the sudden feeling of heat is that this time in January and February there has been continuous rain and snow on the peaks. Due to which the month of February remained relatively cold. “The weather is dry now, so the heat is the same these days, but we’re feeling it more,” he said. That is why the heat that should have been rising slowly in February seems to be rising sharply. He says it is fine now but if the temperature rises in the near future, it will have a detrimental effect on agriculture and forests.
For some time now, the meteorological department has been intensifying the heat in Tehri
This effect of heat on Saturday was also seen on the website of the Meteorological Department for some time. Tehri district of Uttarakhand recorded a low of 14.8 degrees Celsius and 15 degrees above normal. However, the meteorological department immediately rectified the mistake. The meteorological department said that this was due to an automatic update. The meteorological department decides the average daytime temperature based on the average temperature of the last 30 years. This compares the fluctuations in the maximum and minimum temperatures of each day.
