heatNew Delhi, Monday, September 19 – Gentle winds post noontime brought slight comfort back in Delhi a few days ago but same did not last in the lately concluded weekend, which ended on a hot note. If truth be told then people living in the national capital are puzzled to a certain extent with the sudden rise in temperature in September.

They hoped for rains in the peak monsoon period but what they have been facing at present is clear sky that gives sun a lot of room to add to harsh heat. Here is to mention that climatic conditions in the current month have been unpredictable right from the first week of this month that was full of sunshine. The last time Delhi received considerable precipitation was on August 31. Weekend added to trouble post slight rise in mercury due to warm weather.

Sporadic rains may be seen in a few regions but that is not supposed to bring any comfort at all. Abundance of sunshine will let the intensity of heat go up. Overcast sky is not expected to come into picture soon. If truth be told then the feel of comfort seems to be getting a bit far way. The residents felt uncomfortable in stepping outside in the day time thanks to rise in temperature all of a sudden in the last month of third quarter, which is usually considered soothing. Here is to mention that the temperature was up the moment new month started. Signs of hot weather were apparent since then as sunshine was clear and bright.

People expected that weather transition will bring huge relief in the surroundings after some time. To a certain extent, anticipation was right as gentle winds blew at a good pace during the night time. The change in type of weather did not make rains to fall often, adding trouble for populace. Weather was hot a day ago. It did not put a ceiling on summer and same scenario is expected to last at least for some time from now. Even as of today, people woke up to a sunny morning in view of the fact that no possibility of downpour existed. Mild breeze may welcome them towards the end of the day but not too change is to be felt. Weather conditions is expected to stay the same in Delhi and nearby regions for the next few days, nullifying probability of witnessing a quick change in the near term.

Maximum temperature of Delhi is supposed to vary in the range of 33 degree Celsius and 35 degree Celsius, while the minimum temperature between 24 degree Celsius and 26 degree Celsius this week. Strong likelihood of sunlit mornings in the seven-day time remains on the cards. No useful news regarding mercury to stay low is annoying the mob a little bit. Sky is expected to get gloomy mid-week. Forecast of light rains from today till Sunday may turn true in cities of Uttar Pradesh.

As far as wetness is concerned in the capital city, it will rise up from 47 per cent to 60 per cent, making things somewhat uncomfortable. One positive point with current temperature is that it is not letting mosquito borne diseases spread faster. Scenario would have been difficult had the humidity been higher, troubling the people dwelling in Delhi, where a lot of citizens are complaining about chikungunya and dengue fever. Speed of the wind is to be 8 km per hour on Monday, making the searing heat get extreme during afternoon. If latest reports related to climate in remaining days of this month are to be mentioned then plenty on sun will increase temperature once again.

Exposure to sunlight may possibly let the masses feel the discomfort and avoid going out if not necessary, largely during the middle of the day. In view of the fact that no downpour is to lash the city roads, warmness will trouble school going kids, daily wage workers and office goers at different time intervals. The higher and lower temperature may follow up and down fashion. A mix of hot and cold conditions, which are observed inside the house, may let people face a lot of health issues. Its oscillation may increase the risk of several seasonal diseases.

Not to forget that chikungunya outbreak this year has been keeping the doctors and medical staffs busy these days. In the nutshell, partly cloudy sky, clear weather with sunshine and rain are ready to let general public experience weather change in a short span of time. Health experts continue to guide people to opt for safety measures to avoid the chance of being down due to fever. “If symptoms of dengue or chikungunya, which could be severe headache, pain in entire body or joints, dehydration, itchiness on skin and red patches, are visible then patients must be admitted to the hospital as early treatment will help the sufferer recover faster”, said a doctor of a government hospital.
