"Since March 19, there has been no weather system (trough or cyclonic circulation) along the sea coast. Usually, these systems help bring the temperature down by pulling over cloud cover. But, in the last two weeks there has been a lull in such activity," said Dr K. Naga Ratna, a scientist with the weather department.

Due to the rise in temperature, the wild animals are entering into human habitations from forest in search of food and water. The water ponds in Seshachalam and Nallamala forests have already dried due to the intense heat and lack of rainfall last year. The forest officials have arranged water ponds all over the forests to prevent the animals from entering into the nearby villages in search of water.
