Heat Wave in Telengana – No immediate end in sight

In what is turning out to be one of the worst in recent times, Heat wave in Telengana is carrying on unabated and it appears there is no immediate end in sight.  Along with parts of Vidarbha & Odisha it is Telengana that is seeing the ugly face of this scorching summer so far.  While Heatwave in Telengana region is not unheard off what is peculiar this year is the early onset of scorching summer.

Possibly under the influence of devolving El Nino most places have been seeing temperatures cross 40 degrees regularly while places like Medak, Nalgonda & Ramagundam in Telengana and Anantapur, Kurnool & Rentachintala in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh have started seeing day time maximum temperature stay around 43 degrees almost on a daily basis.
