In fact, it was the hottest May day in the past six years, and the second hottest May day in at least the past 10 years eclipsed only by 48°C recorded on May 20 in 2016.

The maximum temperature in the city was 4.2 degrees higher than the normal on Wednesday.
The minimum temperature was also 2.8 degrees higher at 29.7 degrees - bringing no respite to citizens even during night hours.
