Clouds, Westerlies provide relief from hot, humid weather
New Delhi, Aug 13 (UNI) After moderate showers last night, an overcast sky and cool Westerly winds today continued to provide Delhiites respite from hot and humid conditions.
For the second consecutive day, Delhiites woke up to an overcast sky, suggesting possibility of more rain or thundershowers in the city later today or tomorrow.
The minimum temperature dropped to 27.3 degrees Celsius, one degree above normal. However, a sharp rise in humidity led to a slight increase in maximum temperature to 35 degrees, one degree above normal.
After a brief spell of moderate showers yesterday, weathermen forecast more spells of rainfall in Delhi and other plains of North west India in the next two to three days under the influence of a fresh low pressure area over Northwest Bay of Bengal.
''The current meteorological analysis suggests scattered to fairly widespread rainfall over plains of Northwest India,''the Met office said.
After nearly a week of dry conditions and, consequently, hot and humid weather, the capital city last night received a brief spell of moderate showers, which brought down the mercury by four degrees.
The Met office has forecast a generally cloudy sky in Delhi during the next 24 hours with one or two spells of rain or thundershowers.
