Tags: National Science and Technology

Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired an important meeting on 5 May 2022 to review the heat wave management in the country and preparedness regarding the forthcoming South-West monsoon. 

The meeting was attended by the officials of Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) and National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).

The Prime Minister advised the State and the Union Territory government to make a plan at the district level to deal with the unusually high heat wave experienced in the country.

 The Prime Minister also advised all the States to prepare flood preparedness plans and undertake appropriate measures. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has been advised to develop a deployment plan in flood-affected states.

Unusual Heat Wave in India 

  • According to IMD the heat wave in India is mainly during March to June and in some rare cases even in July. The peak month of the heat wave over India is May. 
  •  However this year the heat wave has been intense. The current heatwave spell over India began in March and recurred in four spells — March 11 to 19, March 27 to April 12, April 17 to 19 and April 26 to 30. 
  • India, on an average, recorded its warmest March days in 122 years with the maximum temperature clocking in at 1.86°C above normal.

What is heatwave

  • In India Heat wave has been defined by the IMD as a condition of air temperature which becomes life threatening to a human if exposed to it.
  • Heat wave is defined based on the temperature thresholds over a region in terms of actual temperature or its departure from normal.

Criterion for declaring heat wave in India 

According to IMD if the maximum temperature at an IMD station reaches at least 40 degree centigrade or more for Plains and at least 30 degree centigrade or more for Hilly regions then it is considered a heat wave in India.

Following criteria is used by IMD to declare heat wave condition   :

(a) Based on Departure from Normal Temperature:

Heat Wave: If the temperature is more than 4.5 degree centigrade  to 6.4degree centigrade  from normal.

Severe heat wave: If the temperature is more than 6.4 degree centigrade above normal 

(b) Based on Actual Maximum Temperature 

Heat Wave: When actual maximum temperature is equal to or more than 45 degree centigrade 

Severe Heat Wave: When actual maximum temperature is equal to or more than 47 degree centigrade.

 If above criteria met at least in 2 stations in a Meteorological subdivision of IMD for at least two consecutive days then it is declared as heat wave or severe heat wave.
