52.3°Ca Sensor Error, Rain Expected in 2-3 days

Delhi temperature

Day after day, Delhi’s temperature is reaching new peaks. The capital is recording new highest temperatures and heatwaves every day. On 29th May, according to the IMD, Delhi recorded 52.3°C, the highest temperature ever. However, it was a sensor error or local factor, as it was an outlier in Mungeshpur. The IMD is analysing the data and sensors to check the accuracy of the temperature recorded.

The much-needed relief from heat waves is expected in 2-3 days due to rain and calmer winds. According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), a change in weather, likely rain, is expected in a few days. The light shower in Delhi-NCR gave temporary relief, but it was still a challenge to tolerate the heat waves.

IMD stated in a release, “It has rained at many places in Delhi in the afternoon, resulting in further temperature fall. Heatwave conditions will reduce during the next 2 – 3 days due to gradual fall in temperature in association with approaching western disturbance, rainfall/thunderstorm and south-westerly wind blowing from the Arabian Sea to northwest India”.

People living in the capital eagerly await relief, but no sign of rain exists. The monsoon season starts in July in Delhi, recording temperatures between 26.6°Cto 33.7°C. The maximum temperature in Delhi varied between 45.2°C to 49.1°C until now in the season.
