"Heatwave conditions were observed in many places in isolated pockets over Delhi, south Uttar Pradesh, East Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh, and Saurashtra," the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Sunday as quoted by news agency ANI.

However, this heat wave spell will be short lived as by June 12, rain and thundershower activities accompanied by dust storm are likely over parts of Delhi and NCR. These rains will occur in association with a Western Disturbance over Jammu and Kashmir and its induced cyclonic circulation over parts of northwestern plains.

After the onset of the Southwest monsoon was delayed by a week, the India Meteorological Department said it has further advanced in the south Arabian Sea, most parts of Lakshadweep and some parts of Kerala and south Tamil Nadu among other regions.
