Cloudy skies for the better part of the day kept the mercury within normal levels in Delhi but caused a problem of humidity for the residents of the national capital on Thursday.
The day temperature was recorded at 34 degrees Celsius in Delhi, which is normal for this part of the year, and almost identical to Wednesday’s 34.1 degrees.
But humidity levels oscillated between 58 and 88 per cent, making for sweaty conditions in the city during the day. Earlier, cloudy skies greeted Delhiites in the morning as the minimum temperature was recorded at 27 degrees, again normal for the time of the year.
The minimum, on Wednesday, was at 28.2 degrees, a notch above normal. The weatherman has predicted generally cloudy skies with
the possibility of thunderstorms in some parts of the city on Friday.
“The maximum and minimum is expected to settle at around 34 and 26 degrees, respectively,” the MeT office said.
