Delhi records all-time high of 48 degrees Celsius in June, heatwave to continue
NEW DELHI: The mercury shattered all records in Delhi with parts of the national capital recording an all-time high of 48 degrees Celsius on Monday.
The city's previous high of 47.8 degrees Celsius was recorded in Palam on June 9, 2014.
"The Palam Observatory recorded an all-time high of 48 degrees Celsius on Monday. The factors that led to this are dry westerly winds, no effect of a western disturbance in the plains and intense heating in the month of June," said India Meteorological Department regional weather forecasting chief Kuldeep Srivastava.

Immediately population control is required.
Less population means less use of heat emitting resources like air conditioners and vehicles.
Otherwise in next 5 years temperature will reach new heights and water scarcity would be there.
I would request government to have a cap on population irrespective of religion.

Delhi has become a concrete jungle and little space for greenery and trees so the temperatures are bound to raise every year.
