Hyderabad: Here is some good news on the weather front. Chilly nights will soon end in Andhra Pradesh as the night temperatures are expected to get warmer each day, according to weather expert Rajanikanth Poolla.

The Indian Meteorological Department says that the maximum temperature in Visakhapatnam will reach 30 degree Celsius this week.Mr Poolla stated that it was a warmer winter this year as the northern winds from Himalayas were disturbed by Easterlies and south easterlies.

He says, “The winter in both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is ending soon this year as we did not receive much of cold waves from the North, which were disturbed by easterly winds coming from Bay of Bengal. This week we can see increase in the night temperatures and winter will gradually fade in the two States.”

Mr Mahesh Palawat of Skymet Weather, a private weather forecaster, differed though. He said both the two States will experience winters till the middle of February. “Though the wind directions are changing, temperature will not increase in the coming weeks and winter will continue for some more time,” he added.

Adilabad district of Telangana experienced a minimum temperature of seven degrees Celsius this winter, after which the mercury levels rose due to moderate rains in Andhra and Telangana.

After the rain clouds moved to Uttar Pradesh a temperature decrease of two to three degree Celsius was noticed in the Telugu-speaking States, but mercury levels did not decline.

Mr Poolla says, “The winds from sea are usually warmer than the winds from land and this winter as we had easterlies from Bay of Bengal, we experienced a warmer winter. This doesn’t mean that summers will also be warmer than usual.”
