At 48 degree temperature, Delhi heat shatters all time record, Cyclone Vayu to bring relief

Weather in Delhi

Delhi heat shattered all records on Monday as the maximum temperature soared to 48˚C. Prior to this, the highest maximum temperature in June was recorded at 47.8˚C on  June 9, 2014. This was eight notches above the normal average, leading to extremely hot weather conditions in Delhi-NCR.

Similarly, Safdarjung Observatory too broke record with day maximum settling at 45.6˚C, which is the highest since 2009.

Heat wave conditions have already been wreaking havoc over the national capital for the last few days, but conditions soared to new levels on Monday afternoon. Adjoining areas of Noida, Gurugram and Faridabad too sizzled with scorching heat.

According to weathermen, this significant rise in the day temperatures is the result of  unabated flow of hot and dry winds from northwest direction. Places in Sindh, Pakistan and Rajasthan are already battling with high day temperatures.

Thus, we do not expect any relief from the ongoing severe heat wave conditions over Delhi-NCR during the next 24 hours. However, probable Cyclone Vayu is likely to bring relief thereafter.

According to Skymet Weather, the likely cyclonic storm Vayu is presently seen as a deep depression in southeast and east-central Arabian Sea. It is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm by June 11. As the system would be tracking north-northwestwards, it would gradually start impacting the wind pattern over the northwestern plains as well.

Simultaneously, a Western Disturbance would be moving over Jammu and Kashmir and induce a cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan. With cyclonic storm being a more powerful system, it would also pull these systems. As a result, we would see pre-Monsoon activities such as dust storm, thunderstorm or light rains by July 12, bringing in much needed relief.

These rain activities would stay for at least 2-3 days, resulting in drop in temperatures. It would be a gradual relief only. We would like to reiterate that these rains would be during latter part of the day and would be patchy in nature. Thus forenoon hours would be hot and humid. Though heat wave would abate but humidity will cause unconformable weather conditions.
