Amritsar hottest at 42.2C

Chandigarh, April 26
Many places in north India today braved a hot day with the mercury soaring over the 40C mark and Amritsar in Punjab turning out to be the place recording a high of 42.2C, six degrees above normal.

Ludhiana recorded the maximum temperature of 40C, up by three degrees, while the high at Patiala touched 40.6C, also three above normal, the Meteorological Department said here.

Sweltering conditions gripped most parts of Haryana where Hisar was the hottest place recording a high temperature of 43.3C, four degrees above normal.

Ambala and Karnal also got no respite from the heat conditions with both places recording respective maximum temperatures of 39.7C and 39.2C.

Chandigarh sweat under 39.6C, four degrees above normal, and the scheduled power cuts ranging up to two hours made the heat a bit intolerable for the residents. PTI
