New Delhi, Sep 22 (UNI) A short burst of yesterday's heavy rains failed to bring Delhiites any relief from humidity as the mercury today stayed three degrees above normal at 37.2 degrees Celsius.
Unlike yesterday's cloudy conditions, the capital witnessed a sunny day today.
Though cool Easterlies in the morning led to a drop in minimum temperature to 23.7 degree Celsius from 27.5 Degree C yesterday, the maximum temperature remained by and large the same as yesterday and three degrees above normal at 37.2 Degree C.
The coming days could, however, see an increase in the rainfall activity in Delhi and other parts of Northwest India due to the influence of a mid-tropospheric westerly trough.
'' Morning's depression over North-West and adjoining West-Central Bay of Bengal moved northward and lay centred close to Orissa coast near Puri at 1430 hrs. The system is likely to move in a Northwesterly direction subsequently.
In view of a likely interaction of a westerly trough with above system, enhanced rainfall activity with isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely over Northwest India from September 24 to 26,'' the weather office said.
The met office has forecast a partly cloudy sky in the capital during the next 24 hours with likelihood of thunder or light rain in a few areas.
