Hot day in Delhi, heat wave experienced at isolated places


Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

It was a hot day in the national capital with heatwave conditions being experienced at isolated parts of the city.

The maximum temperature settled at around 38.7 degrees, three notches above the season's average while the minimum rose to settle at 23 degrees, also two notches above the normal, a Met department official said.

The humidity oscillated between 71 and 24 per cent.

The Met office has forecast overcast skies for Friday.

"The maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to hover at 39 and 23 degrees respectively," the weatherman said.

Temperature is expected to rise over the next few days and heat wave conditions will persist as there is no system which may lead to rain or thunderstorm activity over Delhi, Mahesh Palawat, the vice president (Meteorology and Climate Change) of Skymet said.

On Wednesday, the maximum temperature was recorded at 38.7 degrees Celsius, three notches above the season's average, while the minimum settled at 20 degrees Celsius.
