December 13, 2014 1:37 PM |

The Western Disturbance moving across Jammu and Kashmir and a cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan and adjoining areas brought scattered light rain in Delhi, parts of Punjab, Haryana, west Uttar Pradesh and north Madhya Pradesh on Saturday morning.

Minimums kept dropping consistently in Delhi since last 3-4 days. On Friday morning, the minimum temperature at the Safdarjung Observatory in Delhi settled at 5.1°C, which is the lowest minimum of the season so far. A day earlier the morning minimum had settled at 6.6°C, which was 1 degree below the average.

However, Delhiites woke to a dull gloomy Saturday morning. In view of patchy rain and cloudy sky minimums witnessed a significant rise and settled at 10.4°C. Minimums have risen in Punjab and Haryana as well. Chandigarh recorded 8.7°C as minimum on Saturday, Kapurthala 8.2°C and Ludhiana 5.5°C. Hisar also saw a significant rise in morning minimum, which settled at 8°C.

Meanwhile, the maximum temperatures are likely to drop marginally across the plains of North India as scattered light rain will continue till Sunday evening.

As have been reiterated by Skymet, fog will make a comeback in entire North India including Delhi after December 16. Minimums will drop once again as the Western Disturbance moves away, while maximums will maintain levels or rise marginally.
