It was a humid weather with a clear sky in Delhi on Wednesday with 70% relative humidity recorded at 8.30 am, but the meteorological department has predicted thundershowers in later part of the day.
The minimum temperature was recorded at 29.6 degrees Celsius, two notches above the season’s average, while the maximum is expected to be 37 degrees, a Met official said.
Slight traces of rain were registered in some areas of the city, especially the ridge area, and the day is likely to remain mostly cloudy, according to the weather office. An official said the national capital might also witness thundershowers in the later half of the day.
On Tuesday, the maximum temperature settled at 40.6 degrees Celsius, five notches above the season’s average, while the minimum was recorded at 29.2 degrees.
The IMD has earlier forecast good rainfall from July 11 for three days.
“Delhi is expected to receive good showers on July 11 while the next two days will have moderate rainfall,” an IMD official had said earlier this week.
With isolated pockets of Delhi NCR, Haryana and Punjab witnessing some light monsoon rains, private weather forecasting agency Skymet had said, “This clearly indicates the sign of monsoon revival over the plains of northwest India. The weather is also in no mood to return to the hot and dry condition again as we expect one or two short spells of rains to occur over parts of west Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, parts of Haryana and north Rajasthan.”
