Heat wave in North India

Large parts of north and central India were gripped by a severe heatwave on Tuesday, with the mercury crossing 50 degrees Celsius in Rajasthan's Churu and Haryana's Sirsa and Delhi staying nine notches above normal. At least three weather centers in Delhi recorded a maximum temperature of 49 degrees Celsius or more. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the temperature was 49.9 degrees Celsius in Mangeshpur and Narila in Delhi and 49.8 degrees Celsius in Najafgarh.

It was the highest temperature recorded in the capital this season. However, Mangeshpur and Narila weather stations came up in 2022 and have records for the last three years only. The IMD said that respite from heatwave conditions may be seen after May 30.
