Palam recorded a maximum temperature of 45.4 degrees Celsius, while Ridge station was the warmest in Delhi with 46.9 degrees Celsius. Ayanagar reached 45.7.
Some parts of the city witnessed rainfall on Tuesday morning and there are predictions of very light rain on Wednesday as well.
“A partly cloudy sky is expected. Dust storm or thunderstorm accompanied with light rain and gusty wind are predicted for Wednesday. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be around 41 and 31 degrees Celsius respectively,” said a Met official.
Delhi’s air quality was ‘poor’ on Monday with an AQI of 300.
According to SAFAR, a body under the Union ministry, the air quality in Delhi is in the ‘severe’ category.
“Delhi is experiencing widespread dust lifting from the morning, which is locally generated due to high temperatures and a sudden rise in wind speed as part of a western disturbance. However, this condition will not last long and PM10 levels will come down rapidly by late afternoon as boundary layers go up and winds will slow down,” a SAFAR report stated.
