Haryana to face scorching heat, maximum temperature may cross 46 degrees Celsius

 May 14, 2024

Haryana is all set to experience a severe heatwave in the coming days, with the maximum temperature expected to cross 46 degrees Celsius in some districts. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a yellow alert for the state, warning of intense heat conditions from May 6 to 10.

South Haryana districts to bear the brunt

The heatwave is likely to be particularly severe in the southern districts of Haryana, including Mahendragarh, Rewari, Jhajjar, Gurugram, Mewat, Palwal, Faridabad, Rohtak, Sonipat, and Panipat. In these districts, the maximum temperature could reach 44 to 46 degrees Celsius during the next four to five days.

Hot winds to add to the misery

Apart from the scorching heat, hot winds blowing at speeds of 30 to 40 kilometers per hour are also expected to aggravate the situation. These conditions are likely to cause significant discomfort and health risks, especially for vulnerable groups such as the elderly, children, and people with pre-existing health conditions.

Heatwave expected to peak by May 31

According to the IMD, the heatwave is expected to peak by May 31. This could lead to a surge in electricity consumption, as people rely more heavily on air conditioners and fans to stay cool.

Rainfall deficit adds to the problem

The heatwave is further exacerbated by the rainfall deficit in Haryana. The state has received only 4.2 millimeters of rainfall during the period from May 1 to 13, against the normal of 7 millimeters. This deficit has contributed to the dry and parched conditions, making the heat even more unbearable.

IMD advises caution

In view of the impending heatwave, the IMD has advised people to take precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses. These include staying hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, avoiding strenuous activities during the hottest part of the day, and wearing loose-fitting, light-colored clothing.

Additional tips to beat the heat:

  • Take cool showers or baths frequently
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine
  • Eat light, healthy meals
  • Rest in air-conditioned spaces whenever possible
  • Seek medical attention if you experience any heat-related symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, or vomiting
