New Delhi: The national capital on Saturday witnessed maximum temperature of 46.2 degree Celsius – the highest this season — with the weather office predicting severe heatwave in the coming days.

According to the IMD, heatwave/severe heatwave will continue over most parts Delhi/NCR between May 24 and 27 due to dry and northwesterly winds prevailing over northwest India and Delhi/NCR.
