Delhi temperature reaches all-time high of 48 degrees

WEB DESK

The mercury broke all records in Delhi with many of the national capital recording an all-time high of 48 degrees Celsius Monday.

The city’s previous high of 47.8 degrees Celsius was recorded in Palam on June 9, 2014.

“The Palam Observatory recorded an all-time high of 48 degrees Celsius Monday. The factors that led to this are dry westerly winds, no effect of a western disturbance in the plains and intense heating in the month of June,” said India Meteorological Department regional weather forecasting chief Kuldeep Srivastava.

“Southwesterly winds on Tuesday may cause the temperature to drop by one or two notches. However, the heat wave will persist,” he said.

The Safdarjung Observatory, which provides official figures for the city, recorded a high of 45.6 and a low of 27.2 degrees Celsius.

Hot dry winds- loo – swept the city, compounding the woes of people who had to venture out for work.

Dholpur in Rajasthan became the hottest place with 51 degree Celsius. The weatherman has predicted no possibility of any respite from heatwave in the next few days.
