Heatwave alert in Agra as the mercury rises 7 degrees Celsius above normal

AGRA: The meteorological department has predicted a heatwave in the Agra region for the next four days. On Monday, Agra remained the second hottest city after Varanasi in UP.
Mercury level increased to 41.8 degrees Celsius, seven degrees above normal. The minimum temperature rose from 20.4 degrees Celsius on Sunday to 21.4 degrees on Monday. Hot winds blew across the city at 10 km per hour during the afternoon. According to the weatherman, the temperature is likely to increase over the next four days.
Last year on April 4, the maximum temperature in Agra was recorded at 37.7 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature was 15.6 degrees Celsius.
With the temperature remaining above normal throughout the month of March this year, farmers fear the weather could affect pulses, vegetables, and fruit crops. Hot temperatures will reduce the germination of pulses. The size of vegetables and fruits may also shrink. Wheat, a major Rabi crop in the region, will also be impacted. “Controlled irrigation is required to protect crops from adverse weather conditions,” said Agra district agriculture officer Vinod Singh.
On Monday, temperatures across UP remained above normal. As compared to Agra, the maximum temperature in Aligarh was recorded at 39.6 degrees Celsius, while in Bareilly, it was 38.7 degrees, and 38 degrees in Meerut.
In Lucknow, the mercury level on the maximum scale was recorded at 41 degrees Celsius. Varanasi remained the hottest city in UP at 42.8 degrees Celsius.
