Heat wave has gripped Andhra Pradesh again on Sunday after parts of the state received rains due to cyclone Roanu for two days.

The highest maximum temperature was recorded in Bapatla at 44 degrees Celsius, while mercury crossed the 40 degrees Celsius mark at over 11 places in the state, IMD officials said.

Due to convection of hot air from north and central India, heat wave conditions will prevail in parts of coastal Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema region in the coming days, they added.
