As per the weather department, Bhubaneswar city has broken its earlier record of 42.2 degrees Celsius on March 21, 2016, and the reason behind the rising temperature is due to the hot and dry wind from the west. The dry wind is now blowing in the lower atmosphere and there is probably less moisture in the air, the surface temperature has considerably gone up.

Even among the list of the hottest place in the world, Balasore was another place to be listed by recording the maximum temperature at 43 degrees Celsius. As of now around 13 places in Odisha recorded the maximum temperature in March with above 41 degrees Celsius.
