NEW DELHI - The national capital Wednesday received 1.6 mm of rainfall, pulling the maximum temperature down six degrees below the average for this time of the year. More rains are predicted for the first half of Thursday, a Met official said.
“The maximum temperature recorded today (Wednesday) was 21.3 degrees Celsius which is six degrees below average,” an India Meteorological Department (IMD) official said.
However, the minimum temperature was six notches above average at 15.7 degrees Celsius because of the cloud cover that enveloped the capital early in the day.
“There will more rains tomorrow (Thursday) morning. But as the day advances, the skies will clear. The minimum and maximum temperatures are expected to hover around 16 and 22 degrees Celsius respectively,” the official said.
