It was an uncomfortably warm day for Delhiites today as the day temperature soared to record 35.5°C. This is the highest maximum recorded for the season so far.
The last time when the day temperature came close to this record was on March 20, when the maximum at the Safdarjung Observatory had settled at 34.1°C.
This weather pattern is going to sustain in the city for another 48 hours after which some relief will be observed in terms of clouding and rain.

A fresh Western Disturbance will approach the Western Himalayas today. It will gradually induce a Cyclonic Circulation over Northwest Rajasthan and its adjoining areas. Also, a trough is likely to extend from this system up to Southwest Uttar Pradesh.
In the wake of these systems, we expect rain and thundershower activities over Delhi and NCR on March 30 and 31 i.e. Saturday and Sunday. Rains will however be patchy and light in nature.
The weather will mainly remain cloudy with isolated light rain and some thundershower activities. Although, these rains will not be fairly widespread or heavy, but they will certainly give some relief from the rising temperatures for a couple of days.
After the passage of WD on April 1, the weather will clear over Delhi-NCR. Due to clear skies and bright sunshine temperatures will once again shoot up. Minimum temperatures are already recording above normal for the last few days. These temperatures are expected to increase further and may settle in the range of 20 degrees.
