Delhi residents finally got some respite from the blistering week-long heat. The capital saw scattered rainfall and strong winds on Thursday. The Met department has forecast similar weather conditions for Friday and the maximum and minimum temperature are expected to hover around 41 degree Celsius and 31 degree Celsius, respectively.
According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the city received 0.8 mm of rainfall until 5.30 pm. The maximum temperature stood at 41.1 degree Celsius, two degrees above normal, down from Wednesday’s 43.6 degree Celsius. The minimum temperature in the city was recorded at 30.5 degree Celsius — three degrees above normal.
“The thunderstorms were due to fresh moisture supplied by the South-Westerly winds from the Arabian Sea. Thunderstorms occurred all over the city accompanied with some light rainfall,” Dr Rajendra Kumar Jenamani, director in-charge of IGI Meteorological department, said.
