Delhi and its adjoining areas are likely to get slight relief from the intense heat in the next 48 hours, said India Meteorological Department (IMD). The minimum and maximum temperatures of the national capital are likely to hover in between 30 degree Celsius and 40 degree Celsius tomorrow (June 5).
It was a warm morning in Delhi today, with partly cloudy sky. The minimum temperature settled one notch above the season's average at 28.7 degrees Celsius.
The maximum temperature is expected to hover at around 39 degrees Celsius and there are chances of rain or thunderstorm in the later part of the day, which may provide relief from the scorching heat, a weather department official said.
The relative humidity was 54 per cent at 8.30 am, he said.
Heatwave conditions abated in Delhi on Monday, but high humidity added to the discomfort of the people.
The weather office has forecasted that moderate to heavy rains, thundershowers along with lightning and gusty winds upto 40-50 km per hour with a possibility of hail at one or two places are likely to hit Hamirpur, Solan, Shimla, Kinnaur, Sirmaur, Mandi and Kullu areas of Himachal in the next few days.
However, severe heat wave conditions will continue in isolated pockets of the country -- east Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha. East Rajasthan and some parts of Haryana, Marathwada Chhattisgarh, and Telangana will also bear the brunt of heat wave conditions.
