“The temperature has been down at a few locations in the country today… so the heatwave will not be there today in many areas of eastern India and over north UP, Delhi, north Punjab and North Haryana,” said RK Jenamani, senior scientist, IMD.

” The temperature will remain normal from May 1-5. We predict no heatwave. In Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana, rain may fall. These areas have been given warnings about thunderstorms and dust storms. Monsoon prediction is from May 15,” he added.

“Heat wave conditions in isolated parts over Vidarbha during 01-03 May; over MP, Chhattisgarh, Telangana & West Rajasthan on 01 and 02 May; over HP, Punjab, Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi, south UP, Kutch & East Rajasthan today. The IMD tweeted: “Abatement of heatwave over the region thereafter.”

India has been suffering from intense heatwave conditions over the last few weeks. Northwest and central India recorded the highest average maximum temperatures in April since 1900 as there would be no respite for the region in May.

With scanty rains owing to feeble western disturbances, northwest and central India experienced the hottest April in 122 years with average maximum temperature touching 35.9 degrees Celsius and 37. 78 degrees Celsius, respectively.

On Saturday, Banda in Uttar Pradesh had recorded a high of 47.4 degrees Celsius, the highest in the country. High temperatures were due to “continuously low rainfall activity” in March and April.
