There was no relief for residents from scorching heat as mercury level crossed 40 degrees Celsius on Tuesday. The meteorological department said there would be no relief in coming days as hot winds will continue to blow. Hot winds blowing across the city made the day unbearable for residents on Tuesday as people confined themselves to indoors to protect themselves from hot winds. The maximum temperature on Tuesday was 40.4 degrees Celsius, which was normal while the minimum temperature at 21.9 degrees Celsius was also normal.
“Hot winds have made weather dry and there are less chances of relief even if clouds form in northern parts of state,” a department official said. The humidity recorded on Tuesday morning was 24 per cent while it was 12 per cent in the evening. The temperature had dropped to 32 degrees Celsius, a few days ago, due to rain and thunderstorm. This was because of collision of two low pressure areas generated over western Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
