Rain gods to make Delhi Holi a chilly affair

March 9, 2017 2:59 PM |

Delhi Holi 1

The festival of colours is just around the corner and with that the curiosity among the Delhiites is expected to reach to its optimum level. The fear of hot weather on Holi can take a backseat as the recent rainy activity over the National Capital will pave way for a cool Holi.

Since last 48 hours, Delhi has been witnessing light rain and thundershower activity. At present, an active Western Disturbance is persisting over Jammu and Kashmir and an induced cyclonic circulation is over Northeast Rajasthan and adjoining Haryana. And a trough from this system is extending up to West Uttar Pradesh across Delhi.

Due to such weather conditions, clouds are expected to develop in the late afternoon evening of March 9. According to Skymet Weather Chief Meteorologist Mahesh Palawat, rain and thundershowers are expected over Delhi NCR during night of March 9. The intensity of rain may increase on March 10 and so light to moderate rains with one or two intense spell for short duration at one or two places can be expected.

Maximum temperatures may reduce significantly during rain activities but by March 12, we expect dry and clear weather conditions to make a comeback over Delhi. But with dry weather in place, the day temperatures are not expected to rise immediately. So the day will remain warm and sunny with temperatures ranging between 25°C to 26°C on Holi. The minimum temperatures may fall marginally by 1-2°C and can range between 10°C to 12°C.

So it is safe to say that post this rainy spell we can expect pleasant weather conditions to continue till March 15, thereafter day and night temperatures may increase gradually.
