Respite in store from heat waves!

Some sort of respite is in store from sweltering heat wave across the state on Wednesday if the weathermen are to be believed.
The paralyzing heatwave is likely to be over by the evening as there is every possibility of rainfall and thunderstorm in some parts during the next 24 hours.
However, the temperature is likely to touch by 37 degree Celsius in the afternoon disrupting the normal life across the state on Wednesday. 
The Regional Meteorological Centre at Borjhar has forecast of change in weather during the next 24 hours.
RMC blames a depression that remains stationary over the north eastern Bay of Bengal which has blocked moisture inflow to Assam and its neighbouring north eastern states during the last fie days.
Wednesday morning started at 29 degree Celsius and it the figure has gone up to 35 at 9 in the morning which is expected to touch 37 degree Celsius.
Guwahati is also burning in the sweltering heat waves along with other parts of the state.
Denizens are surrounding the coconut and watermelon vendors for some sort of respite. Ordinary Guwahatians are off from the roads to escape the heatwave that has been continuing for the last couple of days.
