New Delhi, May 11 (UNI) Sultry weather conditions prevailed in the Capital for the second consecutive day today with a sharp rise in humidity levels leaving Delhiites perspiring.

Delhi saw a sudden rise in humidity levels to 61 per cent today, from just 30 per cent yesterday.

The high humidity levels meant that despite a decrease in maximum temperature to 40.2 degree Celsius, from 40.8 degree Celsius yesterday, the heat of the Sun seemed unbearable.

The sultry weather was made somewhat bearable by the high speed South Westerlies blowing through the Delhi air.

The coming days are unlikely to bring much relief from the sultry weather with the humidity expected to further increase during the next 24 hours.

The weathermen have forecast a mainly clear sky in Delhi over the next 24 hours with thunderstorms expected in some areas.

They have also predicted that the mercury would drop to 40 degree Celsius tomorrow.

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 Celsius on Saturday. By and large, the mercury would hover around the 42 degrees Celsius mark, they said.
