New Delhi: There seems to be no respite from the sweltering heat as temperatures have soared across the country. The delay in monsoon has further aggravated the situation. Condition in North India is the worst.

Situation in the national capital Delhi is no different as the average temperature in May-June was around the 42 degree mark which is the highest in last 33 years.

The meteorological department has predicted monsoon rains in Delhi and its adjoining areas during the next one or two days while it may reach other parts of the country by the end of the week.

Meteorological Department office has indicated sufficient rainfall in the month of July-August but that may not compensate for the delayed monsoon.
