A resurgence of heat will come back with a vengeance this week as the highest readings so far this year will be rivaled.
As high pressure centered over the Arabian Sea strengthens, the heat will once again intensify across northern India this week.
Temperatures will climb early in the week before challenging the hottest readings so far this year at midweek.
Highs at midweek can be near 42 C (107-108 F) in the NCR and Lucknow with temperatures set to crack the 43-degree Celsius (110-degree Fahrenheit) mark in Ahmadabad.
As temperatures climb, so will the dangers to the millions of people and animals living across the region.

Residents will once again have to take the necessary precautions to avoid heat exhaustion and heatstroke, as well as deal with poor air quality.
Drink plenty of water, wear light clothing and avoid strenuous activities during the midday and afternoon (the hottest times of the day). Be sure that the elderly, children and homeless are following these precautions. Ensure that animals have the proper means to keep cool.
Buildings without air conditioners will not be able to cool at night as temperatures may not dip much below 27 C (81 F).
Another storm may attempt to throttle back the heat across northern India by next weekend. However, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Jason Nicholls expects any relief not to last long.
"There will be varying degrees of heat over the next few weeks as high pressure weakens and strengthens," he said. "Northwestern India will probably still be a little hotter than normal next month, but likely not as hot as last May."
Average high temperatures range from 38-40 C (lower 100s F) in the NCR in May.
