Delhi may see thunderstorms with wind gushing at a speed of up to 30 kmph on June 1 and the maximum temperature is predicted to settle around 40 degrees Celsius, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.

An east-west trough is running from Haryana to Bangladesh at lower tropospheric levels. Under its influence, parts of Punjab, Haryana, west Uttar Pradesh, east Rajasthan and Uttarakhand may witness scattered light rainfall, the weather office said.

Some parts of Delhi may also see thunder activity on Wednesday which will keep the temperature in check, said Mahesh Palawat, Vice-President (climate change and meteorology), Skymet Weather. A heatwave is unlikely in Delhi for a week, he said.
