City has been experiencing maximum temperature of 41.0 degrees Celsius since last couple of days.
The night temperature also remained two degrees Celsius above normal at 21.2 degrees Celsius.
“Winds blowing from north to southward direction will take its toll on the night temperature more and heat waves coming from neighbouring states can push the temperature up in coming days,” weathermen said.

Water scarcity in many areas With the increase of temperature, residents of various areas in the city are facing water scarcity and they have to wait for tankers to meet their water demands.
Water works incharge of Indore Municipal Corporation Balram Verma claimed that they have not received any major complaint about water scarcity.
“In view of the increasing heat, we will increase number of water tankers to meet the needs of the city.
He said the corporation started water supply through few water tankers.
Save water campaign Expecting more water shortage, city residents have started a campaign to save water by taking small steps and changes in habits.
