Weather forecast: Delhi turns into boiling pot as mercury soars to 47 degree Celsius

Published Date:

Intense heatwave conditions are likely to prevail over northwest and central parts of India on Sunday.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) informed today. This intense heat spell is likely to reduce on Monday.

The weather department also issued an orange alert for the heatwave in Delhi on Sunday.

It has been predicted that mercury may soar to 46-47 degrees Celsius. The weather officials say the heatwave spell is likely to worsen on Sunday.

On the other hand, Jammu recorded this season’s hottest day at 43.5 degrees Celsius. Moreover, a red alert has also been sounded for several districts of Rajasthan.

Dholpur has turned into a hot cauldron already with the mercury rising to 48.5 degrees Celsius.

Gurugram remained the hottest place, recording a high of 46.8 degrees Celsius; Ambala, Hisar, Karnal, Rohtak, Narnaul, Bhiwani and Sirsa recorded their respective maximum temperatures of 44, 46, 43.2, 46.6, 45.5, 45.4 and 46.4 degrees Celsius.

Heatwave: Climate change owing to anthropogenic emissions is causing widespread heatwave conditions. Not only India and South Asia but the entire world is witnessing unprecedented heatwave conditions.

From bushfires to drought and flash floods conditions are getting extreme. Hunger and crop loss are some of the resulting losses for humanity. But this is not it, there is more on the cards.

Now, the scientists are mulling over making some changes in the heatwave threshold. in the United Kingdom never before experienced heat levels are concerning the scientists.

Northwest and central India recorded the highest average maximum temperatures in the month of April since 1900.

This is the reason why the official definition of a heatwave will see some changes in a band of English counties.

To call it a heatwave, the temperature in a specific area has to reach a threshold and this very level is rising day by day, year by year.

This rise can be attributed to the warming temperatures due to carbon and sulphur emissions in the air.

IMD forecast for heatwave

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) released the monthly outlook for temperature and rainfall on May 1, Sunday.

It shows most parts of the country except parts of southern peninsular India are likely to experience warmer nights in May.

Notably, the minimum temperature in Delhi hovers at 25.8 degrees Celsius on Sunday.

The heatwave forecast also shows that the maximum temperature in Delhi is likely to touch 43 degrees Celsius.

There will be a partly cloudy sky with the possibility of thunder development and heatwave conditions.

Moreover, heatwave conditions continue in isolated pockets over West Madhya Pradesh from May 1-3.

An east-west oriented trough across north and northeast India in lower tropospheric levels will cause rainfall with lightning and gusty winds over northeast India and Sub-Himalayan West Bengal during the next 5 days.

Heatwave conditions are also likely to continue over Delhi and adjacent regions for the next three days.
