Odisha is currently grappling with severe heatwaves, and according to the weather department, the worst is yet to come. The Meteorological Department has issued a warning stating that temperatures will rise by 4 to 6 degrees Celsius in the next five days. The intense heatwave is expected to persist, with temperatures reaching up to 46 degrees Celsius in some areas. Bhubaneswar, Jharsuguda, Malkangiri, Balangir, Titilagarh, Nuapada, Bhawanipatna, and Paralakhemundi are forecasted to experience temperatures above 43 degrees Celsius.

Orange alerts have been issued for May 26th and 27th in several districts including Sundargarh, Jharsuguda, Bargarh, Sambalpur, Kendujhar, Mayurbhanj, Anugul, Dhenkanal, Cuttack, Jajpur, Bhadrak, Balasore, Kendrapara, Jagatsinghpur, Nuapada, Balangir, Sonepur, Boudh, and Khordha.

There is a likelihood of heatwaves in Nuapada and Gajapati districts as well. The Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) has advised district collectors to be prepared to deal with the situation. Most parts of the state will continue to experience heatwave conditions on April 25th, although there won’t be a significant increase in temperature.

Coastal and interior Odisha, including Nuapada and Gajapati districts, are likely to experience heatwaves. There is a possibility of rainfall due to pre-monsoon showers in one or two places in western and central Odisha. However, the Regional Meteorological Centre has forecasted that it will have no impact on the state’s weather.
