Ujjain, 6 May 16. After weeks of scorching heat that resulted in one of the warmest April on record, heat wave conditions have abated across most parts of the country and pre-monsoon showers were recorded in northern, eastern and a few central regions.

On Thursday, the Met department's weather warning indicated that barring Kerala no other state or region in the country was reeling under heat wave conditions that cause the day temperatures to rise 5-6 degrees above normal. Already, over 150 people have been killed due to the heat wave, especially in Odisha, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

On Wednesday and Thursday, rainfall occurred at many places over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, East Uttar Pradesh and Odisha too. Maharashtra and Gujarat though did not receive any pre-monsoon showers but may see some in the coming days. The abating heat wave brought down temperatures across the Gangetic plains and even in north India, the conditions were more comfortable even as temperatures remained high.

Patna, Jamshedpur, Ranchi, Bankura, Gorakhpur and Varanasi in the Gangetic plains that had experienced record breaking heat in April all temperatures drop by 4-5 degrees.

Met experts said that weather phenomenon such as western disturbance, cyclonic circulation and wind discontinuity have all resulted in bringing relief from the heat wave. "With soaring temperatures, a lot of moisture is drawn in and combined with favourable wind patterns, it has resulted in pre monsoon showers. A western disturbance over north India brought snowfall in J&K and rainfall in many places across north India, reducing temperatures. But, the relief is temporary and temperatures will rise again next week," said DS Pai, director, long-range forecasting division, India Meteorological Department.

Pai also added, "These pre-monsoon showers are nothing unusual and with temperatures rising high so early, they were bound to occur. Temperatures in April were one degree above normal in relation to the historical average."
