The scorching and scorching heat is at its peak over the northern plains states of Rajasthan, Haryana, NCR and Delhi. Hisar district recorded a maximum temperature of 48 degrees Celsius on Friday, which is the highest of the season.


According to meteorologists, due to the formation of anti-cyclonic circulation system in the upper atmospheric levels of western Rajasthan and adjoining areas and the effect of hot and dry westerly winds of Balochistan and Thar desert in the lower levels of the atmosphere, there is a severe heat situation in the state. Dr. Chandramohan, the nodal officer of the Indian Meteorological Department’s Sub Center at Narnaul, said that a cyclonic circulation is going to form under the influence of a new Western Disturbance, due to which the anti-cyclonic circulation will weaken and the direction of the winds will be southeast. There is every possibility of getting relief from the scorching heat from the night of 16 May.

According to Dr. Chandramohan, the temperature is increasing rapidly in Rajasthan, Haryana, NCR and Delhi. In the coming three days, the scorching heat will set a record. Because at present, the effect of hot and dry winds of Balochistan and Thar desert continues over the entire area. Also, another weather system has formed from Friday.
