Hyderabad to witness harsher summer this year
As per weather predictions, Hyderabad is likely to witness a harsher summer season this year. The reason behind it could be the El Nino event.
El Nino events can not only increase the temperature in Hyderabad during the summer but also affect rainfall and crop output.
It is a climate pattern that results in the abnormal warming of surface water in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. This effect can cause the sea surface temperature to rise by as much as 4 to 5 degrees Celsius above normal. It has a profound impact on weather patterns all over the world.
El Nino is an important part of the climate system, and its effects can be felt for less than a year.
