New Delhi


Delhi and its adjoining areas are likely to experience dry weather and sky is expected to remain clear, though cold winds from northwest may continue to give the shiver, experts said on Tuesday.

According to private weather agency Skymet, the day temperatures will now increase, while the night temperatures will not see any major changes.

For the last two days, moderate to dense fog has been observed in parts of Delhi. But in the coming days, as per the forecast, the intensity of fog will subside and only shallow fog or mist will be there during the early morning hours.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) stated that there are chances of western disturbances in the northern parts of India but that would not make much impact in the national capital.

"There are chances of light rainfall or drizzles in the city on March 8 but it won't last," an IMD official told IANS.

According to IMD, in the next 48 hours, maximum temperatures over Delhi-NCR will settle around 23 degrees Celsius, while the minimums will hover around 12 degrees.

On Tuesday, the maximum temperature recorded in the city was 22.8 degrees Celsius, four notches below the season's average, while the minimum temperature was 12 degrees, one notch below the season's average. - IANS
