Bhubaneswar, April 19: Development of anticyclone in the Bay of Bengal may bring some respite from the extreme heat wave conditions prevailing across Odisha from April 21, the Centre for Environment and Climate (CEC) of Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan (SOA) said on Friday.
The extreme heat may continue for one more day on Saturday but there may be flow of weak sea breeze into the coastal districts and nearby regions from April 21 which might continue till April 25, Dr. S.C. Sahu, Director of CEC, said.
An anticyclone is an area of high pressure where the air moves clockwise in the northern hemisphere and anti-clockwise in the southern hemisphere.
There was also probability of occurrence of norwester accompanied by rain and thunder on the evening of April 21 and also the next day in the coastal and southern districts of Odisha, Dr. Sahu said.
However, the day temperature will hover between 38 degrees C and 41 degrees C in the interior districts and between 37 degrees C and 39 degrees C in the coastal belt. Some of the stations could record less than 36 degrees C also, he said.
The day temperature may shoot up subsequently due to disappearance of anti-cyclone and absence of sea breeze from April 26 which will continue till April 30 with day temperature rising to 44 or 45 degrees C from April 28, he said.
