The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a two-day heat wave warning for all districts of Telangana state and coastal Andhra Pradesh.

The IMD said that several parts of both the Telugu states are likely to experience temperatures over 42 degree Celsius on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Monday, the day temperature was reportedly high in Telangana.

According to Deccan Chronicle, Adilabad reported the highest temperature at a sizzling 45.1 degree Celsius, followed by Nalgonda which recorded 44.6 degree Celsius. Hyderabad has recorded 39 degree Celsius.

Meanwhile, some places in Mahbubnagar district, Rangareddy district, Nizamabad district and Medak district, received rainfall.

For the next two days, the IMD has said that temperatures across many parts of Telangana and coastal Andhra are likely to be above normal by 2 to 3 degree Celsius and are expected to stay above 42 degree Celsius in many places.

Last week, several parts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh witnessed heavy rain and hailstorm.

Even though the temperature is likely to remain high on Tuesday and Wednesday, the IMD said that light to moderate rain or thundershowers were likely to occur at isolated places of Telangana.

Last month, it was reported that India reportedly witnessed as many as 4,620 deaths caused by heatwaves, out of which 4,246 people died in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana alone.

The two Telugu states were followed by Odisha, which also saw a large number of deaths due to heatwaves over the last four years.
