why is the temperature rising
The Meteorological Department says that in the month of March, the temperature may remain normal or above normal. The temperature will increase after March. The upper air chart, which is 500 MB, clearly shows that the mercury will increase due to the anti cyclone in the central parts of India. Under this, air pressure starts building up in the upper environment. Due to which a lot of air comes down and increases the mercury on the ground. Meteorological Department Pune scientist Dr KS Hosalikar told that due to this process hot winds move and the mercury rises.
Why is the mercury rising in the coastal areas?
Although it is common in the flat areas that the mercury rises after the month of March, but the hot winds in the coastal areas have surprised everyone. The mercury has reached 40 degree Celsius in Mumbai in the last few days. According to scientists, this is due to trade winds. The main reason for this is the Madden Julian Oscillation. Under this process, a barrier (ridge) is formed, due to which the sea air is not able to reach the coastal areas and the mercury rises. The time of Mumbai sea winds is from 11.30 am to 12 noon, but now it comes till 3-4 pm, due to which the mercury reaches 37-38 and it also crosses 40.
