HYDERABAD: There was some relief from the rising mercury levels in the State capital on Sunday. As the sky turned cloudy, the maximum temperature came down a couple of notches and there were isolated showers too in parts of the city, particularly the outskirts.
If the weatherman is to be believed, cloudy conditions will continue for a few more days and there are also chances of rain or thundershowers. But the bad news is, by this time next week, the temperature will be back to normal — in other words, it may be soaring past 40. However, a heatwave is not expected any time soon.
Hyderabad recorded a maximum temperature of 39.6 degree celsius and a minimum of 27.4 on Sunday. There was no such relief for the districts. Nizamabad recorded the highest temperature of the day in the State, 43.2 degree celsius, followed by 41.8 in Ramagundem.
