Heat wave in Delhi, Noida, Gurugram and Faridabad to continue despite dip likely in maximums

Delhi Heat

Delhi and adjoining areas of Noida, Gurugram and Faridabad continues to reel under severe heat wave condition for almost a week  now. Dry and hot weather with clear sky conditions have been paving way for  continuous rise in the maximum temperatures that have been hovering around 46°C. Meteorologists have already issued orange alert for Delhi for today as well as next 48 hours.

In fact, conditions have worsened further during the last 24 hours. According to Skymet Weather, there has been change in wind pattern from hot and dry northwesterlies to humid easterlies. With this, feel like temperatures are even more now, particularly during the peak afternoon hours.

Although isolated parts of Northeast Delhi saw light dust storm followed by a short spell of light thundershower and strong winds on Saturday but it failed to bring any respite. Sky may turn partly cloudy over few parts of the city but it would not have any impact over ongoing heat wave across the national capital.

According to weathermen, at present, a feeble Western Disturbance as an upper air trough lies over the northwestern parts of Jammu and Kashmir.

Simultaneously an east-west trough is extending from Punjab to Manipur across Delhi and South Uttar Pradesh. Due to the presence of this trough, humid easterly winds are blowing over northern parts of Delhi.

The nature of easterly winds is moist which helps in decreasing the day temperatures and rise night temperatures. But the westerly/northwesterly winds which are warm in nature increases temperatures.

Even though in the coming two to three days, weather in Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad will continue to remain dry and hot, but due to easterly wins day temperatures may drop slightly. As said above, presence of moist winds, weather conditions will remain extremely uncomfortable. Thus, heat wave is here to stay fr another 48 hours.

Any relief is only expected between June 4 and 6, when a spell of dust storm and thundershower is expected over Delhi and NCR. This may decrease day temperatures over the region, leading to relief from the ongoing severe heat wave conditions.
