Delhi gears up for heat wave, pollution to rise

May 25, 2019 4:23 PM |

During the last 24 hours, the extreme northern parts of the national capital Delhi were affected by dust storm and thundershower activities accompanied with strong winds. While other parts were experiencing dry weather conditions with dust raising winds. The sky conditions remained mainly cloudy over entire Delhi yesterday.

Due to clouding and thundershower in adjoining areas of Delhi, there was a sudden drop in the day temperature, which settled between 34 to 35 degrees Celsius. These weather conditions were due to the Western Disturbance in Jammu and Kashmir and an induced Cyclonic Circulation in Northwest Rajasthan. Now as both the systems have moved away East-northeastwards, dry weather is expected to prevail in Delhi and NCR for the next 24 to 36 hours.

The surface winds will now recede.  Due to dust in suspension, the pollution levels are likely to increase in Delhi and NCR area.

The weather during night will remain comfortable but a steady rise will be observed now. The day temperature would increase significantly. We expect maximum to reach 45°C by the end of May, marking the return of heat wave in Delhi and it adjoining areas like Noida and Gurugram.

We do not expect any weather activity during the remaining part of May in Delhi and NCR now. So, we can say that this was the last spell of pre-Monsoon activity over the region.
