Nagpur experience heat wave with temperatures surpassing 56°C

Just days after Delhi experienced a record-breaking heat wave at 52.9 degrees Celsius, Nagpur has now been hit with even higher temperatures. On Thursday, the temperature in Nagpur soared to an astonishing 56 degrees Celsius, according to the Times of India.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) reported that two of its four automatic weather stations (AWS) in Nagpur recorded temperatures exceeding 50 degrees Celsius. This surpasses the high temperatures recorded by the Mungeshwar AWS in North-West Delhi on Wednesday.


The Nagpur AWS, located in an open agriculture field at PDKV in Ramdaspeth, recorded an extreme temperature of 56 degrees Celsius. Another AWS at the Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) in Sonegaon recorded 54 degrees Celsius.

In contrast, the AWS at the Central Institute of Cotton Research (CICR) fields in Khapri and the Ramtek AWS both recorded temperatures of 44 degrees Celsius.

These extreme temperatures are causing concern among residents and authorities as they cope with the intense heat wave.
