A heat wave swept areas of Delhi right now, with the utmost temperature likely higher than 45 degree celsius in Palam region, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) explained.
The Safdarjung Observatory, which presents representative figures for the city, recorded a high of 43.eight levels Celsius – 4 notches earlier mentioned the ordinary.
Two Delhi temperature stations recorded their respective optimum temperatures at 44.four degrees Celsius and 44.7 degrees Celsius.
Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of the regional forecasting middle of the IMD, reported a heat wave is probably to proceed in excess of Delhi-NCR on weekend due to hot and dry northwesterly winds prevailing over northwest India.
In significant locations, a heat wave is declared when the highest temperature is 45 levels Celsius for two consecutive days, and extreme heat wave is when the mercury touches the 47 degrees Celsius-mark for two times consecutively.
In smaller locations, like Delhi, a heat wave is declared if the temperature soars to 45 levels Celsius even for a working day, according to the IMD.
