In the coming days, we do not expect any weather activities to occur over the National Capital Region. In fact, dry and hot weather conditions will prevail over Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad. Moreover, in the absence of any significant weather system over the region, warm and dry northwesterly winds will blow over the region. This will result in rise in temperatures.
Thus, during the next three to four days, temperatures over the city will reach up to 45 degree Celsius, leading to heat wave conditions. In fact, an extended spell of heat wave conditions is expected over Delhi and its nearby areas.
In May, the highest recorded maximum temperature was yesterday at 41.9˚C, which was almost 2 degree Celsius above normal. This was a result of the extended dry spell going on over the region since the last few days.
In terms of heat also, the highest recorded maximum temperatures for Delhi was 43.7˚C on April 30. Since then temperatures have not surpassed, whereas generally during the month of May, maximums of the National Capital Region touch 45 degree Celsius.
The National Capital Region experiences an extended pre-Monsoon season due to late arrival of Monsoon. Even though Monsoon arrives over the city during fag end of June but from second half of May, the peak pre-Monsoon season begins over Delhi and NCR.
However, this season during the month of May, pre-Monsoon weather activities have been slightly on the lower side, on account of wind speed. Moreover, till now no intense weather activities in the form of major dust storm or gusty winds has been observed by Delhi-NCR.
