The national capital also reported its all time high power demand of 8,302 megawatts (MW) amid the heatwave and more and more residents have turned on power intensive air conditioning, as per the electricity officials.

Apart from Delhi, Rajasthan’s Phalodi reported 51 degree Celsius and 50.8 degree Celsius. Haryana’s Sirsa recorded 50.3 degree Celsius.

Due to moist wind incursion from the Arabian Sea, Barmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jalore, and Sirohi, witnessed a fall of 4 degree Celsius, which can be considered as an indication of reduction of heatwave over northwest India.

Additionally, incursion of moist winds from Bay of Bengal from Thursday is likely to cause a gradual fall in maximum temperature over Uttar Pradesh.
