Delhi on Wednesday, 18 May, recorded a maximum temperature of 40.6 degrees Celsius, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) website showed. Meanwhile, the minimum temperature settled at 29.6 degrees.

Earlier in the day, The Weather Channel (TWC) forecast had said that temperatures in various parts of the national capital were expected to rise to 42 degrees Celsius, while on the lower side, they would go down to 30 degrees Celsius.

On Tuesday, Delhi's maximum temperature settled at 41.1 degrees Celsius, the IMD said.

"Heat wave conditions prevailed in isolated pockets over Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, South Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Vidarbha, and Northeast Madhya Pradesh," IMD noted on Tuesday's records.

Meanwhile, the IMD had said that severe heatwaves were expected in western Rajasthan and southwest Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday.

The IMD had predicted that the temperatures would go up to 44 degrees Celsius in Jaisalmer, 43 degrees Celsius in Barmer, and 44 degrees Celsius in UP's Jhansi region.

However, overshooting the predictions, the temperatures went up to 44.8 degrees in Jaisalmer, 44.2 in Barmer, and 45.4 degrees Celsius in UP's Jhansi region.

Rainfall Accompanied With Thunderstorm Expected

"The states of Bihar, Jharkhand, Gangetic West Bengal, and Odisha are all likely to experience isolated to scattered rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds over the next 3-4 days," weather channel TWC India reported on Tuesday.

A cyclonic circulation might cause heavy rainfalls over Kerala-Mahe, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu the next three days, IMD reported.
