Bhubaneswar: There will be no respite from extreme hot weather in Odisha in upcoming days as the heatwave condition is likely to prevail till end of this month.
According to Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre, day temperature is very likely to rise further by 2 to 3 degree Celsius over the districts of interior Odisha during next two days due to northwesterly/westerly dry wind and high solar insolation.

Consequently the maximum temperature (day temperature) is likely to be more than 40° C and likely to be above normal by
3° to 5° C at many places over the districts of Odisha during next 4 to 5 days. People are advised to take precautionary measure while going outside during day time between 11 am and 3 pm.
