The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said that heat wave condition is very likely to prevail in isolated pockets in some north Gujarat districts including Ahmedabad and Surendranagar and Kutch in the Saurashtra-Kutch region.

There will be not much change in the maximum temperature on Thursday before it's likely to fall by 2-3 degrees Celsius during the subsequent three days.

From Friday, Ahmedabad is expected to see a slight drop in the maximum temperature, which could fall to 41-42 degrees Celsius over three days.
