According to the Meteorological Department, there is a possibility of heat wave in Delhi on Wednesday as well. However, from July 2, light rain is expected to bring down the temperature. There is no possibility of Monsoon reaching Delhi for the next 5 days.

According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), this is the first heat wave in Delhi this summer. Heat wave conditions prevailed in Lodhi Road, Ridge and Pusa areas, where the mercury touched 42.6 degrees Celsius, 43.4 degrees Celsius and 44.3 degrees Celsius respectively, seven notches above the average.

Kuldeep Srivastava, head of IMD’s Regional Forecasting Centre, said, “Generally, heatwave continues in the capital till June 20.
