Delhi records highest day temperature of the season, maximum to touch 44 degrees

April 24, 2019 8:58 AM |

The national capital Delhi has been observing dry and hot weather conditions for the last few days. On Tuesday most Observatories of Delhi recorded their highest maximum temperature for the season. According to the temperature data available with Skymet, Delhi’s Ridge Observatory recorded highest maximum temperature at 42.7˚C, followed by Palam 42.5˚C, Ayanagar 41.0˚C and Safdarjung 40.3˚C.

The National Capital Region is now heading towards a heat wave like condition as we expect these day temperatures to rise further.

Though, the Western Disturbance over the Western Himalayas has induced a cyclonic circulation over parts of Rajasthan, its impact over Delhi and NCR will be nominal. We can expect partly cloudy skies during late afternoon and evening hours. Patchy thunderstorm activity cannot be ruled out either.

But due to dust storm activities in Rajasthan area along with westerly/northwesterly winds travelling from the region, air quality of Delhi and NCR will deteriorate, leading to very unhealthy pollution levels.

After 24 hours, due to commencement of easterly winds, marginal decrease in both day and night temperatures will be observed in Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad. But this weather condition will not be much helpful in providing any kind of relief to the people.

According to meteorologists, the weather in Delhi-NCR will remain hot and uneasy for the coming four to five days as we do not foresee any significant weather activity affecting the region. In fact, the day temperature may soar to touch 44˚C in the coming days in some parts.
