India Meteorological Department on Monday warned that Delhi could get hotter all over again during the next two days due to lack of thundershower activities over the past few days.

A bulletin from IMD said temperatures could raise over Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan also during the next two days, even as the heat wave conditions prevailing over some parts of Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Vidharbha, Orissa, and Jharkhand could continue for some more days.

A senior IMD official told The Hindu that the temperatures over Delhi could once again rule between 44 degrees and 45 degrees on May 30 and 31, a raise of about 2 degrees Celsius.

The Palam airport in the city had recorded a maximum of 43 degrees Celsius and Safdarjung airport 42 degrees Celsius over the 24 hours ending 8.30 a.m. on Monday.
