Bhubaneswar: After the onset of monsoon in Kerala on June 8, widespread rains have been battering in the southernmost State. While the temperature has come down in one part of the country, mercury still continues to soar in Odisha.

Director of Regional Meteorological Department HR Biswas said, “Temperature will continue to rise in Odisha. There are chances of heat wave conditions from tomorrow onwards. Alert has been issued for 10 districts for three days from tomorrow. They are Sundergarh, Jharsuguda, Sambalpur, Deogarh, Angul, Bargarh, Sonepur, Bolangir and Nuapada.”

North interior, south interior and coastal districts will experience above normal temperature as well.

“After 4 days, temperature will gradually decrease. Till then, thunderstorm activity will occur in Koraput, Malkangiri, Rayagada, Kalahandi, Kandhamal, Gajapati, Ganjam, Puri, Mayurbhanj, Keonjhar, Balasore, Sundergarh, Bhadrak, Jajpur and Kendrapara.”

“Monsoon has advanced in northeast India. Most parts of Mizoram and some parts of Manipur have already started experiencing rains. For next 2-3 days, there are no favorable conditions for the monsoon to advance as there is a depression system in Arabian Sea. While this system will not have any effect in Odisha, it will prevent monsoon from advancing further,” he concluded.
