During the record-breaking temperature, the city's power demand also reached its highest ever level at 8,302 megawatts (MW) on Wednesday afternoon.

A drop of up to 4 degrees Celsius was recorded today in the southern Rajasthan districts of Barmer, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Sirohi, and Jalore due to the incursion of moist winds from the Arabian Sea, indicating the beginning of a reduction in the heatwave over northwest India.

Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) data, which utilizes computer models to process current weather observations for future forecasts, suggests that this decreasing trend will extend northwards, bringing gradual relief from heatwave conditions starting May 30. Additionally, the incursion of moist winds from the Bay of Bengal, beginning Thursday, is expected to cause a gradual drop in maximum temperatures over Uttar Pradesh.
