INDIA, PAKISTAN: For the second month in a row, temperatures in India and Pakistan are abnormally high because of a string of strong and prolonged heat waves – and now another surge is building.

This week, an intensifying heat wave is pushing temperatures to dangerously high levels.

Temperatures topped 37 degrees in the Indian capital of Delhi on Thursday. The city of Nawabshah in Pakistan hit 47.5 degrees – the hottest temperature in the Northern Hemisphere this year so far.

The heat wave has heightened the fire danger in recent days, threatened crop yields and even accelerated melting of some glaciers. While this part of the world is no stranger to extreme heat, scientists say conditions have been worsened because of climate change.

The India Meteorological Department has placed much of that nation under a “heat watch” through the weekend, with some locations like Madhya Pradesh in the centre of the country one step higher at “heat alert”.
