Delhi has been witnessing severe heat wave conditions for the last few days. Yesterday, the temperatures almost dropped by three to four degrees across Delhi and NCR and despite that heat wave conditions were persisting over most parts of Delhi and NCR. Pre-Monsoon showers once again ditched Delhi and its neighbouring areas. Yesterday, Palam recorded 45.4°C whereas Safdarjung recorded 44.5°C.
However, parts of Punjab, Haryana, West Uttar Pradesh, and North Madhya Pradesh recorded rain and thundershower activities with dust storm activities in offing. The pre-Monsoon activities over these places helped in dropping mercury in Delhi. Now, the winds have changed their course from Northwesterlies to Easterlies.
These easterlies would help in bringing the temperatures down and the experts have to say that heat wave condition might abate today, and temperatures won’t touch the mark of 45°C. Along with this, isolated dust storm, rain, and thundershowers are expected today late afternoon or evening. These activities might help in lowering the night temperature.
However, from tomorrow, temperatures might rise marginally with no sudden spike in mercury. Heat wave condition will also not make a comeback. With a fresh Western Disturbance approaching the hills, a fresh spell of rain and thundershowers might be seen around June 15 and 16. Then also, temperatures will be less than 45°C with isolated pockets touching remaining below 40°C. It is safe to say that heat will persist, but the heat wave condition will not make a comeback. The easterlies will continue as a trough and are moving across the south of Delhi. These winds will not allow the temperatures to go up. Thus, relief is in sight for Delhiites for another three to four days.
