Cloud cover, traces of rainfall in Delhi
New Delhi, Mar 20 (UNI) Clouds enveloped the Delhi skyline again today with the capital experiencing traces of rainfall in the afternoon.
After two days of sunny weather, Delhi again witnessed a cloudy sky interspersed with brief periods of sunlight. The thick clouds in the sky resulted in the capital experiencing traces of rainfall in the afternoon.
Though the temperature recorded was near normal-the maximum was at the normal level of 15.3 degree C, the maximum was at 32.0 degree C, one degree above normal-the cloud cover continued to provide relief to the people from the scorching conditions, which characterised the weather since the beginning of February.
Weathermen said the onset of the clouds since this morning is due to a fresh Upper air cyclonic storm originating from areas in West Rajasthan that has resulted in rainfall in Punjab, Himachal and Jammu and Kashmir.
The effect of the upper air cyclonic storm is likely to remain for a day or two with the weather office forecasting a partly cloudy sky with a few thundershowers in the capital in the next 24 hours.
The minimum temperature tomorrow is expected to remain at 15 degree C, they said.
There has been a turnaround in the weather in the capital since the first week of March, a development attributed to a series of Upper air cyclonic storms.
The capital has, since March 8, witnessed three spells of rainfall. On March 8, the capital experienced a sudden burst of hailstorms and rain. Then, Delhi was lashed by heavy rains on March 11.
On the eve of Holi, light rains lashed Delhi sending the mercury plumetting to nearly 22 degree Celsius.
