Delhi to witness rains this weekend: IMD
NEW DELHI: The Good news is that a fresh Western Disturbance will induce a Cyclonic Circulation over Punjab and Haryana. Thus, we can expect scattered light rains over Delhi-NCR by January 5 evening or night. The intensity of rain is expected to increase gradually. Many parts of Delhi-NCR will receive light to moderate rain/thundershower activities. Thus, we can say that these rains might just help in washing away pollutants present in the atmosphere. Hence, pollution levels might see a marginal improvement around January 6 and 7. Also, due to clouding and rains, maximums will also drop by two to three degree-Celsius.
January 7 onward, the weather will start clearing up and cold winds from North will start blowing over Delhi leading to decrease in minimums. Due to increase in humidity levels and drop in minimums, dense to very dense fog will once again make a comeback. Drop in temperatures might bring back Cold Wave conditions for the isolated pockets of Delhi. On the contrary, maximums will start seeing a gradual rise.
Delhi on Friday witnessed the lowest maximum temperature of the season so far at 17.4-degree Celsius, reported Skymet Weather. The lowest maximum temperature was recorded from Palam observatory in South Delhi. Earlier on December 29, the national capital woke up to a chilled morning as the mercury dipped to 2.6 degrees Celsius.
According to the IMD, Delhi recorded an average minimum temperature of 6.7 degrees Celsius in
