A weak western disturbance, as an upper air trough is moving across Jammu & Kashmir and affecting weather in the higher reaches. Consequentially, a mild cyclonic circulation has been induced over North Rajasthan and Haryana. The winds in the lower levels have become light and variable with easterly component, over the national capital. This pattern is likely to last for the next 48hr.
With the change in wind direction, slight rise in the humidity and drop in visibility conditions is quite likely. Mercury level is also likely to rise marginally by about a degree or so. The western disturbance will clear the region by 27thNov. The minimum temperatures will drop again from 28thNov and likely to remain in single digit for the remaining days of the month. Hazy mornings with nip in the air and pleasantly warm afternoons are likely on daily basis. No rainfall is expected over the capital city for the next one week.
