Delhi NCR braces up for hot days, mercury to cross 43 degrees soon

May 27, 2019 5:24 PM |

This summer season, temperatures in Delhi have remained under check till now due to on and off pre-Monsoon activities. On May 17, Delhi had recorded scattered rains and thundershowers, which had led to drop in the temperatures. Since, then there has been a gradual rise in temperatures. Just when the maximums crossed the 40-degree mark, there was another spell of rain over Delhi on May 23.

Now, maximum temperatures are on an increase once again. Yesterday, maximum temperature at Palam Observatory crossed 40°C, while but Safdarjung managed to reach , which was yet a degree below the normal.

According to Skymet Weather, both day and night temperatures across Delhi and adjoining areas of Noida, Gurugram and Faridabad are set to increase. At least for the next one week, we do not expect any pre-Monsoon activity in terms of rain or thundershowers. Dry weather conditions are expected to continue over entire Northwest India including Delhi-NCR.

Uninterrupted flow of dry and hot winds would continue from northwest direction, which will be instrumental in increasing the temperatures.

In the next three to four days, day temperatures in national capital would reach around 43 degrees. Palam Observatory may even record maximums around 44 degree by Thursday or Friday. Although we do not expect heat wave over Delhi for at least the next 3 days, but ‘heat-wave like’ conditions would surely make a comeback and weather will become very hot.

At present, air quality is in ‘moderate’ category. However, a prolonged dry spell associated with strong westerly winds will raise the dust into the atmosphere. Due to this, PM 10 level might increase, and pollution levels may become poor in the coming days. So, we can say that Delhiites will have to brace up for hot days ahead.
