The state is sizzling in the heat wave, with the Met department expecting the severe conditions to continue for the next 48 hours at a few places.

The highest maximum temperature of 43.4 degree Celsius was recorded at Barmer and Churu on Thursday, breaking the all-time record of 43.3 degree Celsius recorded in March 30, 1946.

This is the second time that the desert district has broken the previous all-time high temperature record in the month of March. It was the hottest ever day in Barmer last Monday as the temperature shot up to 44.4 degree Celsius.
