City likely to see sharp rise in temperature

Hyderabad: On Friday, the city witnessed a mizzle late in the night, which can expect to bring down the temperature.

However, during the day the temperature records 34.4 degrees Celsius, slightly to closer to the highest maximum temperature recorded in February last year at 35.1°Celsius.

Though the normal temperature in February is 32°Celsius, on Friday it records 34.4° Celsius.

For the past few days, the city has been experiencing warm days and cold nights with temperature patterns observing fluctuations. Experts have attributed the rise in temperature to warm winds blowing from the south and southeast.

Gradual onset of summer over Hyderabad and Telangana commences during March. However, meteorologists predict that the weather is going to get hotter much before that with maximum temperature expected to touch 36-37° Celsius in the next few days. Meteorologists predict that the summer this year may be equally severe.

Meanwhile, moderate rainfall occurred at few places such as Jagtial, Nirmal, Nizamabad, Medak and Adilabad.
