No relief in sight from heat in Delhi, hotter days ahead

April 25, 2019 12:15 PM |

Delhi recorded a sizzling 41.7°C as the day temperature yesterday, which is the highest recorded maximum of the season so far.

Just a day before, on April 23 Delhi had recorded 40.3°C as maximum that was the second time the city had crossed the 40-degree mark.

The month of April sees a large variation in terms of weather in Delhi. April starts with an average temperature of 34°C and ends at 39°C. The second half of April is quite hot, the start however is a little influenced with the flavors of March (Cooler temperature). True to this, the last three days in Delhi are experiencing very hot temperatures, breaching the season’s record every single day.

A figure close to 43°C is considered quite common for Delhi in April and generally happens towards the end of the month.

The temperatures are however not expected to rise in the next 24 hours- all thanks to the recent Western Disturbance that has formed in the hills, giving light rains over the northern plains. Also, the winds have changed direction from north-westerly to south-easterly.

Today, the weather will remain clear and sunny, with a few clouds appearing during the later part of the day.

Now, the weather is expected to remain dry for at least the remaining days of April. The temperature during this period is likely to settle beyond the 40 degrees Celsius mark. Heat wave like conditions cannot be ruled out since day temperatures are ought to be recorded at least 4 degrees above the average. Even the night temperatures might record well above normal. ‘Loo’ like conditions cannot be ruled out either.
