The IMD´s climate monitoring and forecasting group explained that a long dry period provoked the current severe hot conditions.

Clear skies, the lack of rainfall and the steady dry and warn westerly winds, that blow across northwest and centrl India increase the thermometer readings and it is probably that the heat wave continues.

A cloudless sky implies direct exposure to the Sun´s rays, causing the rise of temperatures, experts added.

Rajendra Jenamani, a scientist at IMD’s National Weather Prediction Center, said that the climate change influences the severity and duration of extreme weather in India, which can be in heat waves, increased cyclone strength and rainfall.

March witnessed two heat waves and global warming is one of the main reasons for the rise in temperatures, scholars said.

Some parts of New Dehli experienced a maximum temperature that surpassed 41 Celsius on March 31.
