The changing summertime temperature pattern baffles meteorologists 2023

The meteorologists are unable to comprehend the perplexing variations in June’s temperature pattern.

According to a study, temperatures in 29 districts of central UP and Bundelkhand have risen so much over the past three years that mercury readings that are typically taken at noon are now being recorded in the early morning hours of June.

“Because nighttime temperatures are relatively high in a number of eastern UP districts, people begin to feel the intensity of the heat at 9 a.m., which they would normally experience in the afternoon,” said Mohd Danish, in-charge of the Met Lucknow office.

Meteorologists from the CS Azad University of Agriculture and Technology stated that this change, combined with high temperatures and high levels of humidity, was disrupting the life cycle of insects.

June marked the start of temperature climb.

“The insects we had not seen in May and June are now visible in these two months, particularly those attracted to light. This, in turn, was disrupting the timing of fruit and vegetable maturation, the scientists explained.

According to Alok Dhawan, director of the Centre for Biomedical Research, which focuses on patient care, an increase in temperature has a significant impact on the life cycle of insects.

Dr. S.N. Sunil Pandey, the university’s chief meteorologist, stated, “Since last November, the temperature fluctuations have been baffling, but the changes observed in May and June are worrisome and must be better comprehended with an eye toward the future.”

Surprisingly, both the maximum and minimum temperature in May were below average.

He stated that the temperature progressively rises throughout the morning, surges between 3 and 4 p.m., and then begins to decline.

“Over the past three years, the temperature that should have been measured at 12 p.m. is now registered at 9 a.m. If this occurs during the monsoon, it is to be expected, but in May and June, it is quite disturbing,” he said.
