Cloudy and dusty weather ahead for Delhi today as the election takes place

May 12, 2019 10:03 AM |

Delhi and NCR is seeing a cloudy weather along with some dust storm activity since yesterday evening. For the last some days, the weather is continuously dry and hot. Already, the dust raising winds have reduced the visibility during early morning and morning hours.

Presently, a Western Disturbance is moving across Jammu and Kashmir and its associated induced Cyclonic Circulation lies over Haryana and Punjab. The Western Disturbance and induced Cyclonic Circulation will be approaching over North and Northwest India in quick succession, during the next 4 to 5 days.

Hence, the frequency of dust storm and thundershower with strong winds will only increase. The weather is expected to remain dusty. As had been forecast earlier, this dust storm activity is likely to deteriorate the air quality over the region. Air quality will continue to remain in ‘poor’ category.

As it’s the election day back at Delhi today, the voters will have to bear the dusty winds and hot weather. However, a slight relief from the scorching sun will be there throughout the day. It is advised to not forget your air masks at the polling booth today.

Though, day temperatures will slightly decrease but will still remain very warm. The nights however will remain comfortable. Yesterday Safdarjung observatory in Delhi recorded a maximum at 38.8°C and Palam observatory recorded a whopping 40.2°C.

The same weather condition is likely to continue during the next 4 to 5 days.
