Heat wave continues to sweep several parts of India with the temperature soaring several notches above the season's average. The Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted the searing heat conditions will continue for the next few days.
Among the places worst affected by the heat wave are Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, Rajasthan, Bihar, Gangetic West Bengal, Odisha, Marathwada, Vidarbha, Telangana, Rayalaseema and Tamil Nadu.
In most other parts of the country, the temperatures have been recorded either "appreciably above normal", which means it was between 3 to 5 degrees "above normal", or "above average", which is 1.6 to 3 degrees more than season's average temperature.
The highest maximum temperature of 44.3 degrees Celsius was recorded at Anantapur in Andhra Pradesh in the country.
Director of Skymet private weather forecasting agency Mahesh Palawat told IANS the heat wave will continue with the temperature rising and a change in the direction of winds.
"The temperature is going to increase as the direction of winds has changed from northwest to southwest direction, that is from Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh to Gujarat, Rajasthan," Palawat told IANS.
"The pre-monsoon showers have also been delayed, and the temperature is likely to hover around 42 degrees Celsius to 43 degrees Celsius," Palawat said.
In Telangana, the temperature is expected to surge to 44 degrees Celsius in the coming days.
If the figures aren't enough, watch how this woman in Telangana makes omelette on a super-heated ground. The video shared by news agency ANI shows a woman in Karimnagar pouring the egg mixture directly on the ground as it gets cooked by the scorching sun.
