New Delhi recorded an all time high temperature of 48 degrees celsius on June 10, as reported by the observatory of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) at Palam in the South West region of the city. This record marks a peak in the ever-growing heat wave trend in the capital.


According to IMD officials, in small areas like the National Capital Region, a heatwave is declared when the mercury touches a 45 degree mark even for a day, as compared to two consecutive days in bigger regions. In this context, the intensity of this heatwave can be seen as quite extreme given that temperatures upto or over 45 degrees celsius were recorded for four consecutive days from June 8 to June 11.
