MP reels under heatwave; Bhopal records highest temp in 63 yrs
Bhopal: The city today recorded a
temperature of 46 degree Celsius, the highest in 63 years, as
Madhya Pradesh continued to reel under heatwave conditions.
Before this, the mercury had touched 45.6 degrees in
Bhopal on May 22, 1947, the Met department officials said.
The maximum temperature shot up to 46 degrees at 2.45
pm, while the minimum stood at 31.5 degrees in the state
capital, they said.
Some parts in Gwalior and Khajuraho experienced light
showers in the evening, the officials said.
The maximum temperature in the state, 47.6 degrees
Celsius, was recorded in Guna and Gwalior, they said and
clarified that the maximum temperature at Morena was a little
over 45 degrees Celsius and not 49.2 as reported earlier.
"After our office was flooded with reports that the
maximum temperature has touched 49.2 degree Celsius in Morena
we cross checked with our Pune office, which put out the
corrected figure," the officials said.
The mercury climbed to 47.1 degrees Celsius in
Hoshangabad, while Rajgarh and Shajapur districts recorded 47
degrees respectively. High temperatures were also recorded in
Narsinghpur (46.6), Rewa and Satna (46 each).
Heatwave conditions are likely to continue in the
state for the next two days, they added.
