Relief from the scorching heat is expected in northwestern and central parts of India in three days due to an incoming western disturbance, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday.

"Expect relief from the heat wave in northwest and central parts of the country after three days due to a western disturbance and moisture incursion from the Arabian Sea. There could be some thunderstorm activity in northwest India and rain in the western Himalayan region," IMD chief Mrutyunjay Mohapatra said.
