Week Of Heat Wave For Delhi - Noida, Mercury Breach 45 Degree

June 11, 2024 12:40 PM |

The national capital warmed up by another degree yesterday, to a record maximum of 43.4°C. The city record observatory at Safdarjung registered this temperature which was about 4°C above the normal.  Next door, Noida breached 45°C mark (45.1°C), about 1°C higher than the previous day temperature of 44.1°C.  Some of the locations in Delhi also crossed 45°C, yesterday. Narela was the highest among all to record 46.6°C closely followed by Najafgarh at 46.3°C. Earlier, Delhi (Safdarjung) recorded the highest temperature of 46.8°C of this season on 29th May 2024. Incidentally, Noida, that day had recorded the highest temperature of 48.1°C. In the past 24 hours, Bulandshahr, on the outskirts of Greater Noida, competed with Noida and Safdarjung to a record high of 45°C.

There is a mild western disturbance moving across the northern mountains, without having any significant effect. The heat wave has impacted some hilly pockets as well and the mercury has breached 30°C. Delhi continues to be swept by dry northwesterly winds. The clouds are going to be insignificant for the next few days. Surface winds are likely to pick up strength blowing warmer air across most parts.

Delhi and Noida will remain in the grip of a heat wave for this week. Maximum temperature will hover around 44°-45°C. Mercury will have an incremental rise, as the week progresses. ‘Loo’ conditions are expected in the forenoon and afternoon hours. Mild pre-monsoon activity is expected over Delhi/NCR at the end of this week. It could be just ‘touch and go’ for a brief spell of speedy dusty winds, followed by fleeting showers, unlikely to offer any relief from the excruciating heat, as such.
