February 19, 2019 1:27 PM |

Delhi RainsDelhi weather has been playing enough games already. Talking about the maximum temperatures, yesterday, the maximum temperature at the Safdarjung observatory settled at a whopping 25.8 degrees Celsius, which happens to be the highest this month.

Earlier in this month, the maximum in Delhi did cross the 25-degree mark on three occasions, which includes 25 degrees on Feb 5, 25.1 degrees on Feb 6, and 25.3 degrees on Feb 13.

Normally, as we progress and go towards the second half of February, temperatures are expected to rise, however, the average for Delhi still remains at 23.9 degrees only.

The recent maximum has been the highest and it has been recorded amidst rainy spell expected over Delhi. Last night also, the city saw rains and thundershowers which were fairly severe even though for a very short duration. Safdarjung in the last 24 hours have seen 2.8 mm of rains.

Now also, rainy days are expected to continue for another three days. In fact, hailstorm activity is also possible over the city. Winds have changed as a circulation is over Rajasthan making them southeasterly. Southeasterly winds have caused the weather to be humid.

Now with more rains, temperatures will reduce over the national capital and will not see a rise in the coming days at least.
