While partly cloudy skies could possibly make a comeback from Thursday onwards, rain is not on the forecast till Aug 16, when rainfall and thunderstorms are on the cards.

According to the IMD, the eastern end of the monsoon trough has shifted closer to the foothills of the Himalayas and the western end runs north of its normal position, resulting in weak monsoon conditions for the next five to six days outside the Northeast, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The trough, a feature of the monsoon, is an elongated low-pressure area that extends from the Northwest part of the country to the Bay of Bengal.
The maximum temperature recorded on Tuesday was 35.8 degree Celsius.
