As winter bids adieu to Delhi, it appears that the city may have a scorching summer ahead. The national capital witnessed an unusually short winter season, and now the temperature is soaring, which may lead to an intense summer this year. On Sunday, Delhi recorded a maximum temperature of 31.5 degrees Celsius, which is above the season’s average and the highest in the month in two years.
The capital city usually experiences long and chilly winters, but this year, the winter season was significantly shorter than usual. The temperature started to rise steadily from mid-February, and now, with the end of February, the heat has become intense. It has been predicted that this sudden temperature rise is due to a shift in wind patterns.
The rising temperature is a matter of concern as it may lead to a harsh summer ahead. With the temperature soaring up to 31.5 degrees Celsius, it is predicted that the city may experience heat waves with temperatures touching as high as 45-47 degrees Celsius in the coming months. Extreme heat waves can cause several health hazards, particularly for children, the elderly, and people with pre-existing health conditions.
The authorities have advised people to take precautions and stay hydrated during the summer months. With the pandemic still looming over, it is imperative to ensure that people are safe and healthy during the summer months. The government has also announced that they will be taking necessary measures to keep people safe from the extreme heat. They will be opening up several cooling centers across the city to provide relief to those in need.
In conclusion, it is evident that the temperature is rising at an alarming rate, and if the trend continues, Delhi may experience a scorching summer this year. The sudden shift in wind patterns has caused a spike in temperatures, which is a cause of concern. It is essential to take necessary precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses and stay safe during the summer months. With the government taking necessary measures to provide relief, we can hope for a safer and healthier summer ahead.
