Indore (Madhya Pradesh): There was no relief for the citizens from the scorching heat on Wednesday as the temperature crossed the 38 degrees Celsius mark for the second consecutive day. However, the weather took a U-turn in the evening as dark clouds enveloped the city sky followed by a spell of drizzling and lighting.
The hot winds blowing from the southwest part of the country throughout the day turned the city morning mildly hot as the temperature rose to 28.6 degrees Celsius at 8.30 am and increased to 36 degrees Celsius at 11.30 am.
Meanwhile, the Regional Meteorological Department officials said that the temperature may increase by a couple of degrees Celsius and the sky would remain cloudy.
