Scattered rain on February 20 helped Delhi and NCR to improve pollution to moderate levels. Since then, the weather has been dry with the temperatures settling in the comfortable range.
Meteorologists at Skymet have predicted an increase in the pollution levels during the next 48 hours due to light winds. They are also indicating rain, considering a fresh Western Disturbance which is expected to approach the Western Himalayas around February 27. This system is expected to bring rain in the National Capital Territory on February 29 which might continue until the early morning of March 1.
Its impact will also be seen in terms of change in wind direction from northwesterly to easterly. The winds will increase the minimum by 1-3 degrees Celsius while the day temperature may fall by 3-4 degrees Celsius due to rain and cloud cover.
Another spell of light rain is possible around March 4 in the wake of yet another fresh Western Disturbance. This particular system will bring along patchy showers for a short duration. Rains may be accompanied by strong surface winds in order of 30-40 kmph.
Not only Delhi, but many other parts of Northwest India are likely to witness rains during this span. Some places in Punjab, Haryana may even witness hailstorm.
