Delhi Weather Plesant 1

During last 3-4 days Delhi and NCR has been receiving light rain at some places, but during last 24 hours rain intensity has picked up pace. Such weather persisted over Delhi due to the effect of an active Western Disturbance over hills and an induced cyclonic circulation over Haryana and adjoining West Uttar Pradesh.

Isolated places over Delhi and NCR have also received hailstorm activities. This rain activity has helped in reduction of day and night temperatures significantly over Delhi and NCR. In the span of 24 hours from 08:30am on March 11, Delhi’s Safdarjung observatory recorded rainfall of 6.1 mm of rainfall whereas Palam observatory recorded rainfall of 10 mm of rainfall.

Due to this rainy spell, both maximum and minimum temperatures are at present below normal. Maximum temperature is 6°C below normal whereas minimums are 5°C below normal. On March 8, temperatures were recorded in lower 30°Cs has now come down to 23.6°C.

Now the Western Disturbance is moving away from the northern hills and the induced cyclonic circulation over Punjab and Haryana has also become insignificant. According to Skymet Weather Chief Meteorologist Mahesh Palawat, “We can now expect clear weather conditions over Delhi and NCR but minimum temperature will remain in comfortable range for another 24 hours. Thereafter gradual rise in both day and night temperatures are expected.”

Day temperatures are expected to remain pleasantly warm and night weather will be cool and comfortable. So we can say this rain episode has delayed the onset of summer and we do not expect significant rise in temperatures for another 1 week.
