Advance prediction of monstrous summer heat spells is now possible weeks before they strike, according to a recent study. Scientists say these predictions will pave the way for countries to prepare for these disasters much more efficiently. These revelations are particularly comforting given the soaring incidence of deadly and often life-threatening heat waves that have, of late, ravaged many communities around the world.
U.S. scientists are optimistic that potentially grievous repercussions of such spells can now by and large be averted thanks to the advances in weather prediction. Summer spells marked by intense heat in the United States and elsewhere can be predicted weeks in advance, giving emergency planners as well as farmers enough time for preparation.
