It noted that northern states would also have day and night temperatures in the ranges of 39 to 42o celsius and 21 to 24 degrees celsius.
“The influx of moisture is up to the north-western states, hence, most parts of the country are expected to experience weather activities mostly in the afternoon and evening hour within the next 24 hours,” NiMet added. (NAN)
