What’s the October hit?
The heat of October is called ‘October heat’ in the Indian subcontinent. October and November are often hotter, when the monsoons leave a little earlier and the weather is clear. According to meteorologists, this effect is also being seen due to the weakening of southwesterly winds. Especially from North India, Monsoon disappears completely during this season. Its departure deadline is 30th September.
Why is October hot?
It is hot in the beginning of October and a bit more this time due to the early departure of the monsoons. This is because during the day there is often intense sunlight and heat rises, while at night the temperature suddenly drops.
