New Delhi, Oct 29 (UNI) After cool weather last week, there was a rise in mercury in the capital today even as a high level of humidity resulted in slightly humid conditions.
The decreasing influence of the Easterlies, which had last week led to drop in mercury to as low as 28 degree Celsius, coupled with the appearance of the Sun in the sky today led to a rise in maximum temperature to 31 degrees C, from 30 degrees C yesterday.
The minimum temperature also rose to 18 degree C, from 17 degrees C yesterday.
Also, slightly humid conditions were witnessed following the humidity levels touching 90 per cent.
The return to warm and slightly humid conditions in Delhi comes after two weeks of cool weather brought about by a fresh western disturbance and, in the subsequent week, a fresh easterly wave. The coming days could witness the maximum temperature hover around the 30 degree C mark though there could be a slight drop in might temperature to 15 degrees C on Thursday.
Weathermen have forecast a mainly clear sky in Delhi during the next 24 hours though the weather could become slightly cloudy towards the evenings.
