heat-wave-2NEW DELHI : People will get relief from the heatwave gradually from Thursday onwards due to western disturbance of the Himalaya region, senior scientist at India Meteorological Department (IMD) Naresh Kumar said on Wednesday.Light rain and dust/thunderstorm are likely from May 28-30 under the influence of a western disturbance and an east-west trough. “… there will be a reduction in heatwave from tomorrow onwards. And thereafter, under the influence of western disturbance, we will receive rainfalls. Thereafter, the heatwave condition will be abated in most parts of the country.”
We are expecting severe heatwave in parts of Haryana, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh,” he added. He further said that prevailing heatwave conditions would only be severe today and thereafter, it will start to ease in most parts of the country including Delhi and NCR.From May 28, maximum temperatures in parts of north India will likely recede with substantial reduction in heatwave conditions from May 29,” the MeT department said.

The north Indian plains continued to experience unusually high day temperatures – averaging 45-47 degrees Celsius – and even night temperatures were higher than normal by 3-5 degrees, IMD data showed. On Tuesday, Delhi experienced its hottest day in 18 years and Rajasthan’s Churu, known for its extreme heat and cold, recorded 50 degree Celsius.
“Over the next 24 hours, the present heatwave conditions are very likely to continue due to the prevailing dry north-westerly winds over plains of northwest India, central India and the adjoining interior parts of eastern India,” the IMD said.
