Weather Updates:Temperature is likely to oscillate between 46-48 degrees Celsius in core heatwave states
The day temperature in Delhi is likely to touch 46 degrees Celsius by Tuesday, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said, warning that a heatwave would predominate most north Indian states, parts of Maharashtra and Telangana this week.
"Heatwave conditions over some parts, with severe heatwave over isolated pockets, are very likely over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha and Telnagana over the next five days," IMD's daily bulletin said on Sunday.
The temperature is likely to oscillate between 46-48 degrees Celsius in all the core heatwave states minus Uttar Pradesh.
This is the first "red" warning issued for heatwave this summer, Mr Srivastava said.
