Mumbai: Even as entire Maharashtra is reeling under intense heat, the India Meteorolgical Department (IMD) suspects that the unusually high temperature of 46.5 degrees Celsius recorded by a temperature mapping centre at Bhira in Raigad district could be wrong.

A report in Skymet said that temperature in Bhira town of Mahrashtra's Raigadh district touched a searing 46.5 degrees on Tuesday. Heatwave conditions continued for second day today in Rajasthan as several districts recorded maximum temperatures of 40 plus degrees. Barmer, Jaisalmer and Siker are the worst affected districts with temperatures hovering between 43 to 44.4 degrees Celsius. Narnaul was again hottest in Haryana at 41.5 degree Celsius. In Punjab, Patiala registered a maximum of 37 degrees Celsius, seven notches more than normal, while Ludhiana recorded 36.7 degrees Celsius.

"Mumbaikars can be thankful to the change in wind direction as well as the sea breeze that helped temperatures to drop".

Meanwhile, official agencies have advised people to refrain from venturing outdoors between 12 to 5 pm, ensure sufficient intake of liquids, proper protective clothing from the harsh sunrays and other precautionary measures to avoid heat strokes, which can be fatal. Temperatures recorded in the last 24 hours in the capital are the maximum witnessed in the month of March since 2010. "The IMD has reported temperature as high as 43 degree Celsius on Monday". In Himachal Pradesh, Shimla recorded a maximum temperature at 25.1°C, 7.5°C above normal.
