Abstract: Extreme events related to heat waves have been increasing day by day in recent years over India. To achieve this, we took the help of the satellite data. In this paper, we analysed maximum temperatures of the heat wave episode which happened during 23 – 26 May, 2015 over Andhra pradesh. Five stations such as nandigama, Kavali, Darsi, Rajamundry and Bapatla were selected and presented in this paper. The reason for selecting these five stations was due to high death rate in this episode. On comparing the both satellite and automatic weather station(AWS) temperature data, the corelation coefficient was 0.80 . There was a sudden increase in the temperatures of about 8 – 130C in the morning hours. Almost 8 – 10 hours with temperatures above 400C lasted causing people expose to high temperatures causing more deaths.
