With the absence of monsoon, Delhi on Monday witnessed heat wave conditions for the first time this summer and recorded 43 degrees Celsius, the highest so far this year. Heat wave conditions prevailed in Lodhi Road, Ridge and Pusa areas, where temperatures were recorded at 42.6 degrees Celsius, 43.4 degrees Celsius and 44.3 degrees Celsius, respectively, seven notches above normal.

However, westerly winds are stopping it further over Delhi, parts of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana.
Srivastava said, “Normally heat wave prevails in the national capital till June 20 and after that the temperature starts decreasing.
