The national capital on Tuesday saw the warmest day of the year so far with maximum temperature recorded at 36.2 degree Celsius, seven notches above the season's average. Chances of a major respite are not much, say weather officials.
Tuesday's minimum temperature settled at 17.1 degrees, two notches above the season's average.
"This is the warmest day of the year so far. Temperature may fall slightly by tomorrow (Wednesday), but would anyway remain around 34 or 35 degrees," the IMD official said.
"The depression over Arabian Sea is cutting off the cold northerly winds and thus Delhi is unable to benefit," Palawat said.
