On Tuesday, Delhi recorded its maximum temperature at 30°C for the first time in the season. After remaining below normal for the entire March, mercury crossed the normal figure for the first time in the month, although by mere one degree only.

The monthly average for the city of Delhi stands at 29.6°C. After first half of the month is over, temperatures start increasing and reach close to 34°C by the end of the month. It is the time when we see summers gradually seeping in.

However, this not has been the case this March. The reason for the below normal temperatures can be the frequent passages of Western Disturbances up in the hills and their induced cyclonic circulations resulting in large fluctuations in winds. Thus, heat could never catch up.

According to weathermen at Skymet Weather, day maximum would see further rise today and settle around 32°C or 33°C. At 10:30 am on Wednesday, the mercury has already reached 28°C. Thus, crossing 30 degree-mark would not be a difficulty.

Once again, a fresh Western Disturbance has approached Jammu and Kashmir and has also induced a cyclonic circulation over northwestern plains. Thus, clouding and some sprinkles can be seen towards the later part of the day. In fact, weather over Delhi NCR will be a little windy tomorrow onward.

However, no activity is being forecast for the next 4-5 days over the region. Thus, more sunshine will affect the area and temperatures would see rise and even touch 34°C in the coming days. Next episode of rain is likely around March 26 but that spell would also not be an intense one. Hence, not much impact would be seen on temperatures.
