Temperature in the Capital touched 45.1 degree Celsius on Sunday while it was 47.8 degree C in and around Palam airport making it the hottest day in 62 years giving no respite to people reeling under a blistering heat wave. Adding to the woes of heat-ravaged Delhiites, frequent power cuts across the city aggravated the situation and made life miserable.
The Indian Metrological Department (IMD) said there is no relief likely from the heat wave tomorrow and similar weather conditions will continue. “Instead, the maximum temperature will continue to hover around 45 degree Celsius on Monday as well,” the IMD official said, adding, “there will be mainly clear sky”. The maximum temperature of 45.1 degree C in the capital was five degree above normal and it was the hottest in five years.
On Saturday, the mercury touched 44.9 degree C. The minimum temperature stood at 28.6 degree C, a notch above the season’s average. On Monday, minimum temperature will hover around 30 degree C, the IMD said. Similar situation prevailed in Palam where the maximum temperature was 47.8 degrees Celsius, the highest since 1952, the IMD department said.
The minimum was 30.8 degree C. Temperature in the national capital breached the 45 degrees Celsius mark on June 6, making it the hottest day of the season.
