Humid weather leaves Delhiites perspiring

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, May 10 (UNI) After two days of comfortable weather, a rise in humidity levels in the capital today left Delhiites perspiring.

Though the maximum temperature rose just slightly to 40.8 Degree C, from 39.7 Degree C yesterday, the high humidity, close to 30 per cent, resulted in sultry weather.

With the Sun shining clear and bright, the humid conditions led to perspiring conditions even though the maximum temperature was just one degree above normal.

The situation was made worse by the decrease in speed of South Westerlies which had, in the past two days, brought some comfort from the heat of the Sun.

The situation might, however, improve in the next 24 hours with the weathermen forecasting thunderstorms in some areas. They have also predicted that the mercury would drop to 40 Degree C tomorrow.

The BBC has also forecast an increase in the speed of South Easterly winds tomorrow which could bring some relief in the face of increasing humidity levels.

However, weathermen say there is not much likelihood of a return to the searing heat wave that had been sweeping through the Capital in the last week, which saw the mercury touching a five year high of 44.5 Degree C on Saturday. By and large, the mercury would hover around the 42 Degree C mark, they said.
