Heatwave likely over Northwest, Central India during next 2-3 days: IMD

Several parts of India will continue to reel under scorching heatwave conditions, the weather department said on Saturday. After a short period of respite, there could be a new heatwave spell over northwest and central parts of the country over the next two-three days, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said.

Heat wave conditions in isolated places very likely over Rajasthan, Jammu Division, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, south Punjab and south Haryana-Delhi on 4 and 5 June, over Vidarbha, Jharkhand, interior Odisha and Chhattisgarh during 4-6 June and over south Uttar Pradesh and north Madhya Pradesh during 4-8 June

Rise in maximum temperatures predicted by about 2°C very likely over most parts of Northwest and Central India and no significant change thereafter.

Meanwhile, the minimum temperature in Delhi on Saturday settled at 28.7 degrees Celsius, a notch above normal, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said. The maximum temperature is expected to touch 44 degrees Celsius, it said.

The southwest monsoon Friday advanced into West Bengal, at least four days ahead of its normal onset date and has covered some parts of the sub-Himalayan districts of the state, the Met department said.

The IMD uses four colour codes for weather warnings — green (no action needed), yellow (watch and stay updated), orange (be prepared), and red (take action).

The weather department declares a heatwave when the maximum temperature is over 40 degrees Celsius and at least 4.5 notches above normal.
