New Delhi, Apr 11 (UNI) It was another pleasant day for the people of Delhi today as a fresh wave of North Westerlies, together with yesterday's thundry squall, brought down the minimum temperature to 19.5 Degree C.

The minimum of 19.5 degree C, one Degree below normal, was a sharp drop from a high of 23 degrees C yesterday, four Degree above normal.

And, with the maximum temperature too witnessing just a slight rise to 36.8 Degree C, from 36 Degree C yesterday, the pleasantness in the weather, brought about by the thundry squall which began on Sunday evening, continued.

However, weathermen said today's drop in minimum temperature was largely brought about by low speed North Westerly winds.

The Meteorological department said the weather since yesterday is a welcome relief from the scorching heat of the last more than a week, which saw the maximum temperature touch 40.4 degree C on Sunday, the highest in this season.

The relief in the weather could continue in the coming days too with the meteorological department forecasting a partly cloudy sky over the next 24 hours. The weathermen have predicted a maximum temperature of 37 Degree C tomorrow.

The BBC too has forecast that the minimum temperature would drop to 18 Degree C and the maximum to 35 Degree C later this week.

It has also predicted light showers for Saturday.
