According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the temperature on Wednesday morning was recorded a notch below the season’s average at 24.3 degrees and humidity was recorded at 82 per cent at 8.30 am. The Safdarjung observatory recorded traces of rainfall, while Palam and Lodhi Road observatories recorded 1.8, 1.5 mm rainfall respectively. According to Skymet, the pre-monsoon rains are because of three phenomenon —Western Disturbance, induced cyclonic circulation and the South Westerly winds.

Also the South Westernly winds from the Arabian Sea are increasing the moisture,” said Mahesh Palawat, Vice President, Meteorology and Climate Change at the Skymet Weather.   The condition, he said, will continue on and off till Friday at least. Te rain will also decrease the heat wave and keep the temperature in control in Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, and parts of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, he added.The humidity at 8.30 a.m. was recorded at 82 per cent.
