The Capital woke up to yet another nippy morning on Sunday, with the minimum temperature touching 9.5 degrees Celsius. The maximum was 27 degrees.
Last year, the minimum temperature on November 30 was much higher — 14 degrees Celsius.
Delhi has, for the last one week experienced quite a few cold mornings with last Tuesday and Wednesday recording minimum temperatures of 9 and 9.4 degrees Celsius, respectively.
Met department officials, however, have predicted that the temperature would go up in the Capital by next week.
“The partial cloudiness that the city experienced on Sunday should continue for the next two days. As a result, the minimum temperature for the coming two days might be slightly higher, and is expected to be 11 degrees on Monday. The maximum may come down to 26 degrees,” said a duty officer at the Safdarjung unit of the Indian Meteorological Department.
Met officials attribute the cloud cover to a western disturbance passing over Jammu and Kashmir and adjacent areas and also low pressure over the southeastern region of Arabian Sea.
Sunday might have been a degree colder than Saturday, but the smog condition was comparatively better.
On Sunday, the Safdarjung unit of the Met department recorded a visibility of 1,000 metres during the wee hours. This was slightly better than the 800 metres recorded on Saturday.
