Many areas of northwestern plains of the country received rain and thundershowers on February 12 and 13. The impact of this weather was felt over Delhi and NCR in terms of cloudy weather, cold winds and drop in temperatures.
Thus, rains escaped Delhi, and the city continued to remain dry. It is due to the continuous dry weather that both the day and night temperatures are constantly rising and settling beyond the normal levels.
Yesterday, the Safdarjung Observatory recorded the maximum temperature at 26.9°C which was 2 degrees above normal. Meanwhile, the daytime high recorded by Palam Observatory was 3 notches beyond normal at 28°C.
