Like Sunday, the sea breeze will remain at a standstill, with winds travelling at a speed of 10 kilometres per hour coming from the north. Because of lack of moist in the air, the port city will not experience a heatwave but the current spell of high temperature is like to continue for two to three more days, PMD spokesperson said.
Meanwhile, the Intermediate board has postponed all examinations due to take place from May 21-23, because of the heat spell in the metropole city.
