After witnessing scattered rains for three consecutive days, Delhi had witnessed dry weather on February 21. The national capital had even recorded the highest maximum of the season, wherein the Palam Observatory recorded day temperature at 29℃ and the Observatory at Safdarjung saw the second highest maximum at 28.1 degrees.
According to Skymet Weather, recent rains and flow of northwesterly winds have majorly improved the level of pollution in the last 24 hours. As a result, pollution has been upgraded to ‘moderate and satisfactory’ level over most places.
Moreover, due to commencement of these winds, day temperatures have dropped by 2℃ to 3℃. In the coming days, these will drop down further and come in the lower 20s. Likewise, minimums may also witness a drop and settle around 11℃.
With no major weather system in the coming days, we expect weather across Delhi and its adjoining areas such as Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad and Faridabad to remain dry until February 24. Thereafter, some clouds may appear on February 25, with some possibility of isolated thundershower and rain during the late night or early morning hours of February 26.
These activities will be the result of a Western Disturbance taking a form over the Western Himalayas. Further, this system will induce a Cyclonic Circulation over West Rajasthan. A trough from this system will also extend up till North Madhya Pradesh. This combination of weather system will travel towards north thereby increasing rains over Delhi and NCR area as well as over other parts of Northwest India such as Punjab, Haryana and West Uttar Pradesh. Moreover, there are also chances of hailstorm at few places. These conditions will occur between February 25 and February 27. Thereafter, weather will start clearing up.
