Jaipur: There was no respite from the scorching heat conditions on Saturday, as the majority of places experienced an increase in their maximum temperatures. Sawai Madhopur remained the warmest in the state, with a maximum temperature of 44.1 ° C, Met Reports reported on Saturday.
Attributing the continued increase in mercury to the active upper cyclonic circulation and northerly winds, the Jaipur Met office said that from Sunday, mercury will continue its upward trend statewide. Additionally, starting Monday, the mercury will drop, with many places experiencing light showers and dust storms.
