New Delhi, May 14, 2022 – Along with the entire northwest India, Delhi-NCR witnessed a massive heat wave on Saturday as Safdarjung registered a maximum temperature of 44.6 degrees Celsius while at least five other stations registered maximum temperatures above 46 degrees Celsius.

As per the India Meteorological Department (IMD), there is a heat wave when the maximum temperature shows 4.5 to 6.4 degrees Celsius departure from normal while the severe heat wave is when this departure from normal is above 6.4 degrees Celsius.

Sunday would be even worse than this as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heat wave conditions at most places with severe heat wave conditions at isolated places with the maximum temperature at Safdarjung likely to reach 45 degrees Celsius. For Monday, the IMD has predicted partly cloudy sky with possibility of dust storm/thunderstorm for the whole of Delhi.
