Scattered rains have occurred over Delhi and NCR during the last two days. These rains were witnessed due to the second active Western Disturbance in the month of February which induced a Cyclonic Circulation over Punjab and adjoining areas. Earlier, Delhi received light rains around February 4.
Also, strong winds from East also continued throughout the period leading to a significant drop in day temperatures over the city. Yesterday, the maximum temperature of Delhi was recorded at 20.9 degree Celsius which is four degrees below normal. Whereas, minimum temperatures have increased significantly due to the persistent cloud cover and was recorded at 15.8°C which was a total of five notches above normal.
At present, easterly winds are still prevailing over the region. On the other hand, the Western Disturbance has now moved away. Thus, we expect the weather to become mostly clear. However, a partly cloudy sky may persist today as well.
Gradually, the wind direction will change by late afternoon and winds from Northwest will take over. There will be a gradual increase in day temperatures as well as a fall in minimum temperatures during the next two to three days. As a matter of fact, we do not expect the Winter chill to make a comeback over Delhi. At the same time, morning and nights will remain cold whereas the day will be warm and sunny.
Looking at the long-term forecast, the weather is expected to remain dry throughout the month. It will not be until the end of February, that we expect another spell of rain and thundershowers affecting the city.
