As the weather becomes more unpredictable than ever, meteorologists have issued a warning for a severe season of intense heat waves and high temperatures this year.

The India Meteorological Department has predicted that heatwaves in April and May will increase the likelihood of record-breaking temperatures.

Another major concern is the resurgence of El Nino, a global ocean phenomenon linked to a poor monsoon.

It has rained a lot this week in some parts of the country.

In West Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Assam, and Meghalaya, severe rainfall was reported in a few isolated locations over the past 24 hours, according to the IMD.
