However, just before Holi, the mercury over northern parts of the country including Delhi and NCR are witnessing a steep rise in day temperatures.

This Holi, most parts of the country would witness dry and sunny weather conditions. Looks like it is the ideal weather to celebrate Holi. However, parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand as well as northeast India might witness one or two light to moderate spells of rain and thundershowers.
