Feeling hot hot hot!!!

I have been lagging behind on last week’s SoCS posts. I might complete checking them out this weekend since my niece went back home with her dad. I am a little sad, because suddenly the house feels so empty, but they all (siblings and their families) will be here next week for their week long vacation. So I am holding on to that.

In the mean time, lets talk about some no.’s especially of the ones that are associated with heat. Bangalore has always been known for its pleasant weather. But me thinks that this has changed in the recent times. I have been here for more than a decade and the climate has been getting worse every year. Thanks to pollution, population and various other factors. But this year it topped the charts. It used to be a little better at nights during summers and the only two months I would need the fan were April and May. But now I had to resort to buying an air cooler because I am sweating at nights. It is 38 going on 42 degrees during the day and god knows what late twentys or early thirties temperature at nights. If Bangalore is facing this problem, then we can only imagine what the situation is in places like Chennai, Hyderabad etc. I know that Coimbatore is blazing. The Indian Meteorological Deparment has issued Extreme Heat warning.

Here is an excerpt from their website (that opens a PPT).

The next 15 days forecast indicates that

  • Day maximum temperatures (Tmax) are likely to be above normal over parts of eastern states (East Uttar Pradesh (UP), Bihar, Gangetic West Bengal, Odisha) and peninsular India during 12th -16th April 2016 with probable development of heat wave conditions over isolated region of East UP, South Interior Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Rayalaseema).
  • The Tmax are likely to be above normal over most parts of India during 17th -21st April, 2016 except western coastal regions, Gujarat, western Madhya Pradesh and north-eastern states with probable heat wave over parts of northwest & central India (comprising Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, east UP, Jharkhanad, Odisha, GWB) and parts of southern peninsula (comprising Telengana and Rayalaseema).
  • During the period 22nd -26th April Tmax will be warmer than normal mainly over eastern coastal states of India and over the region of Vidarbha, parts of Telangana, Marathwada and Rayalseema) with remaining parts of India will be near normal Tmax.
  • Most parts of India are likely to experience warmer than normal night temperatures during 12th -21st April, 2016 outside the northwestern parts (Rajasthan, Gujarat, Punjab and Jammu & Kashmir) which is likely to remain near normal during 12th -21st April.

Even though Karnataka is out of the radar for today (according to the bulletin), I am not very sure. It sure feels like the oven.


Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “no.” Try to think of a specific number, as “no.” is often used as an abbreviation for “number,” and write about it. Or, use it as a word. Have fun!

    The weather has been strange here in Canada too. Our winter was much warmer than usual, which is always welcome. There seems to a lot of flooding and earth quakes all over too, very strange, indeed.

    Winter here was strangely warm, but then didn’t want to let go as early as usual. Today’s good, and that will do for now.

    I didn’t realize you get your warmest weather in April and May. Our summers seem to be getting hotter too – the low forties is not unusual in July and August.

          Then in that case I am truly surprised. Never thought Canada will have that temperature during Summer.

            I’ve driven to New York City in half a day, so I’m pretty far south. We actually had a day a few summers back when it got up to 50C, with the humidity. And yeah, we still get -45C in the winter quite often.

    That sounds uncomfortably hot to me.

      It is 🙂 Sweating at nights is very irritating.
