The capital Delhi is facing the brunt of the hit web. The temperature reached near 50 degree Celsius. It is very cold here in winter. In such a situation, the question arises that why is the effect visible the most? To know the answer, we talked to meteorologist Dr. KP Pandey. He said, ‘Delhi is situated between the Aravalli and the Himalayas at 225 meters above sea level. The capital is away from the sea, so extreme climate is experienced here. It is one of the few selected cities in the country, where both summer and cold are more. No significant Western Disturbance has been recorded over Delhi at this time.

Dr. Pandey further says, ‘The Western Disturbance has been observed in the month of March, April and May but it was not strong enough to bring enough rain. Mostly cloudy or strong winds, which may bring down the maximum temperature by a degree or two, but may not provide relief.

He also presented the figures for this time. He said, ‘This time there were two rainy days in Delhi – on April 21, 0.3 mm of rain was recorded and on May 4, 1.44 mm of rain was recorded. In the month of March, there was absolutely no rain in Delhi. The same thing happened earlier in March 2018 as well.
