Hyderabad: Heat wave continues to grip Hyderabad as the mercury continues to soar and surpass the 42 degree Celsius mark for the second consecutive day.

For the last couple of days, maximum temperatures in the city have settled in the range of 42 to 43 degrees Celsius. The Indian Meteorological Department’s Hyderabad Observatory on Wednesday recorded 42.2 degrees Celsius, which was 5 degrees above normal.

According to weathermen, such high temperatures amount to heat wave like conditions for any city with dry weather conditions. The reason behind the soaring mercury could be attributed to a prolonged dry spell, an official from the Met department said.

Situation would remain grim for the next couple of days as weathermen warn of temperatures rising on Thursday.

Thereafter, though weather models indicate some chances of partly cloudy sky with possibility of thunder lightning during the next 24 hours, it would not have much impact on the temperatures.
