A relief from the sultry summer heat seems to be a far cry for the city dwellers as the Alipore Meteorological department has predicted that the temperature may go up by a few notches in the South Bengal districts.
The temperature in the city will hover over 39-40 degree Celsius. The MeT office predicted that it may rain in some districts but the temperature will not drop as low pressure which was created in Gangetic West Bengal. A whirlpool was formed in Jharkhanand and as a result the sky was cloudy. There may be rain in some districts. But this will not last causing a rise in temperature.
Officials of Alipore weather office said the temperature would rise from Tuesday in South Bengal district. The discomfort level will also go up. In South Bengal districts there will be 2 to 3 degree rise in temperature. In Western districts the temperature will vary anything between 43 degrees to 44 degrees Celsius. In Malda and Dinajpur there will be a rise in temperature. So, even if there is rain there will not be much relief. With this backdrop Murshidabad district is going for poll on April 21.

The doctors have asked people to take plenty of water and cover their face while going out. The eyes should be covered.
