In hot India, the temperature felt in Delhi is 50 degrees

India is burning in miserable heat. When to get rid of this heat? The answer does not match. Most parts of India are still out of reach of monsoons. The weather department of the country is showing that there is no possibility of immediate release from the heat.

New final heatwave warning has been issued in the Indian capital Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. For the past one week, the whole of North India including Delhi has been on fire. News NDTV

Temperature in Delhi hovers around 45 degrees Celsius but the perceived temperature (feels like) is 50 degrees. That is, even though the temperature is around 45 degrees in Khatay-Kolma, it feels hot like 50 degrees Celsius there.

According to the Meteorological Department, the temperature in Delhi is 6 degrees Celsius higher than normal. Monday ‘feels like’ temperatures hit 50 degrees.

A resident of Delhi said, ‘Even at 6:30 in the morning, the water in the tank is boiling. AC is not working. If you put something in the fridge, it is not getting cold.

Stating that he has been in Delhi for the past 20 years, he said, “I have never seen such terrible heat before.”

According to the report, the temperature is rising above 46 degrees in North India including Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand. In Bihar, 22 people have died due to intense heat and humidity in the last 24 hours.

An IndiGo flight from Delhi to West Bengal’s Kolkata was delayed on Monday due to extreme temperatures. The aircraft suffered mechanical failure due to excessive heat. Due to which the Indigo flight was delayed by more than three hours.

According to the weather forecast, there is a possibility of scattered rain and dust storm on Wednesday. Because of that, the people of Delhi can expect some relief. But it is unlikely to last long.

Meanwhile, many people are running to Shailshahr to escape the heat. But there is no solution. Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand are getting more tourists but they are disappointed because there is no cold.

On the other hand, Himachal Pradesh is burning at a temperature of 44 degrees Celsius. This temperature is 6.7 degrees above normal. Again in Uttarakhand the temperature crossed 43 degrees Celsius. Heat wave warnings have been issued for places like Nainital, Mussoorie and Pauri Garhwal.

Uttarakhand’s Dehradun recorded the highest temperature of 43.1 degrees Celsius. Temperature in Mussoorie is 43 degrees Celsius. Even the hill towns like Pauri and Nainital are suffering from heat wave due to very little rainfall in three months.

The temperature in Jammu stands at 44.3 degrees Celsius. The temperature in Katra was close to 41 degrees on Monday.

KJ Ramesh, former director general of the India Meteorological Department (IMD), told NDTV that there was supposed to be relief from the intense heat wave this week, but the cooling of the plains has been delayed due to changes in air over the Arabian Sea.

Another reason is that – according to nature’s timing, although the monsoon season is over now, there is no rain drop in West Bengal. As long as the monsoons do not arrive in these areas, the heat wave will continue in North India.

After some respite from rain on Wednesday, a fresh western squall will enter northwest India, affecting Delhi. Moreover, after June 27, most parts of Uttar Pradesh will get relief, followed by West Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana and Punjab.
