There will be no respite from the heat for a week

The Meteorological Department had ruled out the possibility of getting any major relief from the heat for just a week. Mahesh Palawat of Skymet Weather said that the temperature may drop by 1 to 2 degrees, but the chances of it going below 40 degrees are still less.

India usually experiences heat-wave or extreme heat in the month of May, but now since the end of March, winds have been blowing from Balochistan and are creating heat-wave conditions in the month of April. Palawat said that due to the cyclonic circulation over the Gulf countries, some clouds may be seen over Rajasthan and North Gujarat, but there will be no drop in temperatures.
