The mercury in the "black gold city" of Chandrapur on Tuesday recorded 47 degree Celsius on Tuesday, the highest in the country for the day, as the heatwave in Vidarbha region continued.

According to the Mumbai-based Regional Meteorological Observatory of the IMD, Chandrapur recorded 47 degree Celsius on Tuesday. On Monday, the highest temperature was 46.8 degree Celsius.

"Heatwave conditions are likely to prevail over parts of West Rajasthan and Vidarbha during the next five days and at one or two pockets in northern parts of Madhya Maharashtra and Marathwada during the next two to three days," the IMD's National Weather Forecasting Centre said.

The "orange city" of Nagpur recorded 46 degree Celsius. The Brahmapuri region of Chandrapur, Wardha and Yavatmal recorded 45 degrees Celsius, while Akola and Amravati recorded 44 degrees Celsius each.

In the Marathwada region, Nanded and Parbhani recorded 45 degrees Celsius.

"The reason for the intense summer heat conditions over some parts of Maharashtra can be attributed to the hot westerly winds that are blowing over these regions from Sindh, Balochistan and Central Pakistan region wherein the temperatures are already running sky high, even beyond the 50-degree mark," Skymet Weather stated.

In addition to this, clear and sunny sky conditions for the last many days are also adding to this intense summer heat.

As of now, Skymet Weather does not foresee any weather system over the region. Hence, the weather in Maharashtra would continue to remain hot and dry.
