Similarly, during September 8 to 17, the maximum temperature should be 33.7 to 33.8 degrees, but this year it was recorded above 37 degrees. The climate change is responsible for these conditions and also the lessen number of clouds formation. The rays of the sun are directly reaching the earth.
According to Mahesh Palawat, chief meteorologist at Skymet Weather, before the clouds were formed even at an altitude of 8 to 10 thousand then also it would shower little rain.
