April 20th marked the hottest April day for New Delhi since 2010 with temperatures reaching 109.8 F at Safdarjung Airport and 112.8 F at the Indira Gandhi International Airport. The heat is expected to fade a bit early this week but will return later in the week. Temperatures of 100-105 F are expected in New Delhi through Thursday. Heat waves happen every year in India but the early onset and persistence of this heat wave is very worrisome. Millions of residents and animals are at risk of dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. Real relief from the heat isn’t expected until early June when the Monsoon season arrives.
