NEW DELHI: Delhiites are likely to get relief from the hot and humid weather with India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicting a drop in temperatures from next week.
Kuldeep Srivastava, scientist at IMD, said, “From next week onwards, both the maximum and minimum temperatures will start decreasing by at least two degrees.” He added, “The monsoon has withdrawn from west Rajasthan and as the weather is dry in the capital, the monsoon will withdraw from here in two-three days.”
On Sunday, the maximum temperature stood at 36.2° Celsius, two notches above the normal. The minimum temperature, meanwhile, settled at 23.2° Celsius, one notch above the normal. The capital’s humidity level hovered between 79% and 49%.
Delhi’s AQI was at 117, in the moderate range on Sunday. SAFAR, a body under the Union ministry of earth sciences, on Sunday said the AQI has improved marginally due to the high ventilation and rainfall in Rajasthan, which has reduced dust intrusion. “Favourable ventilation condition is likely to keep Delhi’s AQI in the moderate category,” SAFAR’s report stated.
