New Delhi: The national capital is set to witness a heatwave for at least 6 days from Thursday, June 13 as the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a Yellow Alert. According to the met office, the heatwave will continue till June 18. During this time, the maximum temperature will hover around 45 degrees Celsius. The city was already reeling under severe heat that restricted people from stepping outside their houses only after the sun went down. However, Delhiites should brace for even hotter days now.
According to the IMD, Delhi will welcome the next week with sizzling days as the met office forecasted that the maximum temperature on June 17 and 18 will be 45 degrees Celsius.

A Break from Scorching Heat?

The hot 'loo' conditions will continue for the next 4-5 days, but there is hope for a break next week. Some cyclonic circulations nearby will shift the wind direction, and there is also a weather system running close to Delhi that could bring some rain before the monsoon arrives, said a report by the solo weather forecast Skymet. It added that it is still too early to say definitively, but around June 19-20, Delhi and the surrounding areas might experience some relief from the heat with rain and thunderstorms.
The capital started with a maximum temperature of 45 degrees Celsius on June 13. As the IMD forecasted, the temperature will be 44 degrees Celsius on June 14 and 15. On Sunday, June 16, the maximum temperature will remain at June 16.
On June 12, several pockets of the capital observed sizzling temperature, not amounting to heatwave conditions. Both Safdarjung and Palam observatories recorded temperatures near 44 degrees Celsius, which is about 4 degrees Celsius higher than usual, but it did not quite reach the level of a heatwave.
Most other observatories in Delhi saw temperatures rise above 45 degrees Celsius, meeting the criteria for a heatwave. Narela recorded the highest temperature at 47.1 degrees Celsius, which is about 7 degrees Celsius above normal, resulting in severe heatwave conditions.
