Heatwave in Delhi

In North India, particularly in the national capital, temperatures have surged dramatically. Delhi recorded a peak temperature of 47.4 degrees Celsius on Monday, the highest across the country. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a red alert for severe heatwave conditions in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and Chandigarh. These conditions are anticipated to persist for the next five days.
The MeT Department has also said that the heatwave conditions were also likely in parts of east Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, east Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Gujarat, Saurashtra and Kutch until May 24. The weather office in Delhi on Monday issued a 'red alert' for the next five days due to heatwave to severe heatwave conditions in the national capital.
"Heatwave to severe heatwave conditions is most likely to continue over plains of Northwest India and heatwave conditions over north Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat during the next five days," an IMD post read.
According to senior IMD scientist Naresh Kumar, the current situation will prevail for the next week. "Generally, May is considered the hottest month. If there is no rainfall activity in North India, then the temperature normally crosses 45 degrees Celsius. It is forecast that this situation will prevail for the next week. This scenario will continue for the next five days in Rajasthan, Punjab, and Haryana. We have issued a red alert. A heatwave situation will exist in UP for the next three to four days. Heatwaves will also prevail in North MP. We have issued an orange alert for the region," he said
This comes as the maximum temperature touching 47.4 degrees Celsius in Najafgarh in the national capital -- the highest in the country on Monday.

In the southern part of India, three districts in Kerala -- Kottayam, Pathanamthitta and Idukki -- are under an extremely heavy rainfall warning.
The IMD on Monday sounded an orange alert in Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Alappuzha, Ernakulam, Thrissur, Palakkad, Malappuram and Kozhikode districts.
