Heat Wave Prevails In Rajasthan, Temperature Reaches 49.1 Degress
Heat wave conditions continued to prevail in the desert state of Rajasthan with the mercury touching 49.1 degrees Celsius in Churu on Wednesday.
Heat wave conditions have virtually paralysed life in the state with markets reporting thin attendance especially during afternoons.
While Churu was scorched at 49.1 degrees Celsius, temperature in border districts of Jaisalmer and Barmer reached 48.8 and 48.6 degrees Celsius respectively.
The state capital Jaipur recorded a maximum temperature of 45.8 degrees Celsius, five degrees above average.
Sri Ganganagar and Jodhpur were hot at 48.5 and 48 degrees Celsius respectively.
If weather forecast is to be believed then the state is unlikely to see any respite from heatwave over the next day.
