The maximum temperatures are likely to be around 37-39 degree Celsius over many parts of Gujarat and Maharashtra-Goa coasts for the next 2-3 days. The weather department also put out a warning for “thunderstorm with lightning” for north-eastern states Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, and Meghalaya from February 21 to 23.
On Saturday, Shimla recorded a minimum temperature of 14.4 degree Celsius, its highest at this time of the year since February 23, 2015, when it recorded a minimum temperature of 14.2 degree Celsius, reported news agency ANI.
Delhi’s highest temperature is likely to touch 31 degree Celsius on Sunday, with clear skies by the end of the next week, the IMD said. The daytime temperatures across the national capital are expected to soar over the next few days, reaching a maximum of 32 degree Celsius.
The weather department also added that a western disturbance as a trough in lower and middle tropospheric westerlies runs roughly along longitude 54 degree East and north of latitude 32 degree North. It is likely to affect the western Himalayan region from February 19.
