Delhi along with the other states of Northwest India are witnessing intense summer heat from last five to six days. Rains that had shown up on June 8 have refrained from falling since then. Due to the absence of rains, the temperatures that plunged to a settle in the upper 30s as on June 8, have climbed up once again to rest at a scorching upper 40s.

On account of this, the discomfort level aroused resulting in heatwave like conditions to prevail over Delhi and NCR. In fact, the daytime high as per the Safdarjung Observatory yesterday was a sizzling 42°C while Palam recorded 43°C.

At present, the maximums at both the Safdarjung and Palam observatories are 2 and 3 degrees respectively above the normal.

As per Skymet Weather, the reason for this heatwave like conditions can be attributed to the trough which is running North of Delhi from Punjab to Bihar. Moreover, hot and dry westerly and northwesterly winds from Rajasthan are also blowing over Delhi-NCR.

Due to this, the temperatures have shot to sky touching limits and will continue to prevail this way. However, a slight oscillation of the trough is expected and hence possibilities of occasional dust storms or thunderstorms during the late afternoon or early morning hours cannot be ruled out.

Hence, heatwave like conditions will continue to prevail over Delhi also including in Noida, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, and Faridabad for the next 3-4 days. However, a sigh of relief in Delhi-NCR is anticipated by June 19 when another spell of rains can show up in Delhi and the northwest plains.
