English NewsGurgaon Records 48 Degrees Amid Intense Heatwave In NCR Region

Gurgaon, Delhi’s neighbour, turned into a hot cauldron on Sunday, with mercury touching an unbearable high of 48.1 degree Celsius amid a punishing heatwave in the country’s northern region. Unfortunately, little to no relief is expected in the coming days as the weather office, earlier in the day, issued a warning of a severe heatwave for northwest India, including a Red alert for Rajasthan.

“We have issued Red Alert for Rajasthan for an intense spell of the heatwave, and a Yellow alert for tomorrow. Similarly, we have issued an Orange alert for Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, eastern Madhya Pradesh and Delhi,” said a senior scientist at the Indian Meteorological Department or IMD, Naresh Kumar.

Several pockets of the national capital also witnessed record temperatures with 49.2 degrees at Mungeshpur and 49.1 at Najafgarh.

Recently, NASA shared an image which showed “heat islands” in Delhi at night. The image, taken shortly before local midnight on May 5, showed urban areas and agricultural lands northwest of Delhi.
