The inhabitants of capital territory, Delhi generally experiences first wintry feel in the month of December, wherein both maximums and minimums dip. During that time the minimums drop to single digits wherein they start from 9°Celsius and goes further down till 6-7°Celsius by the end of the month. On the other hand, maximums are between mid 20s and low 20s.

There will be almost a drop of 3°Celsius, both in minimums and maximums by the end of the month. However, drop and rise in temperatures depends on weather systems.

Delhi-NCR has been witnessing dry weather since last three weeks. The only recent change is that the minimums have dropped to single digit in last five days. The lowest minimum for this season was recorded at 8.4° Celsius on December 5. Also, the lowest maximum was recorded at 25° Celsius for this season again on December 5.

For the coming days, we don’t see any major weather change. Light winds will continue to blow, with a marginal drop in both day and night temperatures and the sky would continue to remain clear.

As per Skymet Weather, a fresh Western Disturbance is likely to affect the northern range of hills December 8 onward. However, due to this system, northwestern plains including Delhi will not be affected. All in all between December 9-11, sky can become partly cloudy but there will be no rains.

During this period, minimum temperatures are expected to rise and maximums will see a dip. Thus, once again the pollution levels would go up. The surface winds will not pick up the pace and will remain below 10 kmph. These light winds are not capable of carrying pollutants and dust particles with them. Thus, leading to rise in pollution levels.

As per the experts, there is a minimal chance of rains in coming days. However, between Christmas and New year, we can get to witness light rains. Till then Delhi will continue to witness dry weather conditions.
