It was a warm Sunday, with the maximum temperature settling two degrees Celsius above normal. The maximum temperature was recorded at 38.1 degrees Celsius, while the minimum temperature settled at 21.8 degrees Celsius, a notch above normal.
Humidity level oscillated between 67 and 26 per cent while the sky remained partly cloudy, a MeT department official said. The weatherman has predicted thunder and dust storms between Monday and Wednesday with the likelihood of rain.
“There are chances of weather activities in north-west India including Delhi and NCR and thus duststorm and thunderstorm and rain over Delhi can be expected between April 15 and 17. Intensity may be more on April 16,” Mahesh Palawat, the vice president (Meteorology and Climate Change) of Skymet said.
“In the wake of fresh Western disturbance, a cyclonic circulation is likely to form over Rajasthan and a trough will also extend to north MP. So we expect Delhi and adjoining areas to experience pre-monsoon activities,” he said.
According to the department, the maximum temperature is likely to hover around 39 degrees Celsius tomorrow, whereas the minimum can be at around 23 degrees Celsius. On Saturday the maximum and minimum temperatures were recorded at 36.8 and 21.6 degrees respectively.
