April 14, 2019 10:43 AM |

Delhi Heatwave

Dry and hot weather conditions with moderate winds have been prevailing over Delhi and its nearby areas such as Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad. The sky conditions remain almost clear with pollution levels in moderate to poor category in spite of moderate winds.

At present, a feeble Western Disturbance is moving across Jammu and Kashmir region, which will not be able to effect Delhi and NCR. Hence, dry and hot weather conditions will persist over Delhi and NCR during the next 48 hours. Thus, in the wake of dry and hot weather, both day and night temperatures are also expected to rise over the National Capital Region. Maximum temperatures will settle between 40˚C to 41˚C, whereas minimum temperatures will hover between 23˚C to 25˚C.

This would once again mark the return of heat wave over Delhi and adjoining areas in the next 48 hours.

Thereafter, on April 16, a fresh Western Disturbance will approach the hills of North India and effect Delhi-NCR region in the form of dust storm and thundershower activities accompanied with strong winds at many parts.

During this period, due to dusty winds, pollution levels over the region will become worse and the AQI over most parts of Delhi-NCR will come under poor to very poor category.

On April 16 and 17, day temperatures will drop significantly over parts of Delhi and NCR. However, night temperatures will continue to rise gradually over the region.

Weather conditions will start improving over the National Capital Region from April 18, leading to improvement in pollution levels over the area.
