High humidity and heat troubled the residents of the national capital in the absence of rain on Wednesday.
However, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said a fresh bout of rain is expected on the weekend.
The Safdarjung Observatory, which provides representative figures for the city, recorded a maximum temperature of 38.2 degrees Celsius, a notch above normal.
Most places recorded their maximum temperatures between 38 degrees and 40 degrees Celsius.
Humidity levels oscillated between 57 and 84 per cent.
Though the IMD has predicted a normal monsoon for Delhi, rains have remained subdued since the wind system reached the national capital on June 25.
