If you have been feeling fatigued and irritable lately, blame it on the weather. On Tuesday, the maximum temperature in the city touched 37 degree Celsius — the highest so far this year.
The maximum temperature on the same day last year was 35 degree Celsius while the average for the month is 34 degree Celsius, said an official of the Meteorological Department.
The 37 degree Celsius reading is only 0.6 short of the highest temperature recorded in the city in the last decade. The record was nearly broken when the temperature touched 37.5 degree Celsius on April 29, 2012, according to the official.
Bangalore Meteorological Department Director B Puttanna said the city has consistently recorded high temperatures this month. “In the next two days, the city may get rain as there are changes in the atmosphere”, Puttanna said.
The maximum temperature at HAL airport was 35.2 degree Celsius and humidity 65 per cent. At Kempegowda International Airport, the highest temperature was 36 degree Celsius and humidity 60 per cent.
