Saurashtra, Kutch to be hit by first heatwave of 2021

Ahmedabad: The summer season made its presence felt across India a lot earlier than usual this year, as daytime temperatures began spiking since the very beginning of March.

Now, the first heatwave of the year has officially been declared in India, over Gujarat’s Saurashtra and Kutch subdivision.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the heatwave conditions that were observed over Gujarat’s western coastal region of Saurashtra and Kutch on Tuesday persisted on Wednesday as well.

The Weather Channel’s met team has added that similar conditions may also be on the cards across Maharashtra’s western coastal region of Konkan.

As for the eastern side of India’s coastal region, the state of Odisha could also be lashed by a heatwave from next week onwards, starting Tuesday, March 23, TWC meteorologists add.

In view of the heatwave forecast over Gujarat, the IMD has issued a yellow watch over the Saurashtra and Kutch subdivision, so as to urge its residents to ‘be aware’ of the local weather situation. Within this region, the districts of Porbandar and Gir Somnath are particularly under the threat of enduring sweltering heat.
