On the day of Saraswati Puja, the temperature of the city will rise further.
Kolkata: This time the cold is leaving the city. The Meteorological Department has indicated the possibility of an increase in temperature this week. At present, wind from northwest is not entering the state. In this case, there is no chance of a drop in temperature this week. The weather will remain dry for the next 4-5 days and there is no chance of rain. Even during the day, the night temperature will be 3 to 4 degrees above normal. Temperatures in Kolkata are likely to hover around 30 degrees Celsius for the next two days. Director of Meteorological Department G. Kidas said the minimum temperature in Kolkata on Monday was 16.9 degrees Celsius, three notches above normal. Along with this, the maximum temperature was also recorded at 28.7 degrees Celsius, which is 3 degrees above normal.
Here, a recent discussion on the G-20 and national and regional perspectives on climate change suggests that if global warming continues at the same pace, Kolkata’s maximum temperature will reach 49.6 degrees by 2080. Amphan itself affected 13 million people and caused $13 billion in damage. 3% of the country’s GDP is being lost due to the problem of global warming. If global warming is not controlled, the maximum temperature of Kolkata will reach 49.6 degrees Celsius in the next few decades from 2081.
