Yet another rainy spell is likely to produce moderate thundershowers in the Capital on February 23 and 24.

According to sources in the meteorological department, unlike the two incidences of western disturbances this month, the effect will be more pronounced over Delhi and its adjoining areas.

"The rainfall over Delhi is likely to begin early on February 23 and will continue up to February 24 morning," a Met official said. http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/Popup/2013/2/19_02_13-metro1b.jpg

In addition to Delhi NCR, the weather system will also cause fairly widespread rain and thundershowers over northern Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh.

Thundershowers accompanied by hailstorms may also occur at one or two places in the region.

Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand will receive moderate rain and snow in many places and heavy rain and snow are expected at one or two places between February 21 and 24.

Heavy overnight rain, wind and showers over the weekend has already brought the cold back to Delhi.
