Bhubaneswar recorded temperatre of 40.9 degrees Centigrade

Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha, has recorded a maximum temperature of 40.9°C when the normal temperature in Odisha in February is 32°C. The temperature recorded on Saturday is the highest in a February since 1963. As per the met office, Bhubaneswar had last witnessed 42.7°C on February 23, 1963 and it has now turned out to be the hottest in the state.
This has been reported in dated 21 February 2016.
In the opinion of experts, the spurt in temperature is attributed to clear skies coupled with a weak sea wind, lack of northern wind and stronger south-west wind. Moreover, an anti-cyclone flow (opposite of low pressure) centered over Odisha which has given rise to increase in temperature. However, the day temperature is likely to fall gradually once the anti-cyclonic flow heads towards the sea.
Due to the heat, the roads wore a deserted look because most of the residents chose to remain indoors as they suddenly found themselves in the midst of summer, when it should have been the last phase of winter.
