Residents of northwest India can expect some relief from rising temperatures soon. A western disturbance and induced cyclonic circulation will affect the region, including Delhi-NCR, from Tuesday.
The weather conditions are likely to bring light rain to Delhi, starting Wednesday. This may bring down temperatures, which have been rising over the past week.
On April 6, the maximum temperature in Delhi touched 38 degrees Celsius. It stayed near the 35-degree mark for the rest of the week. Between April 16 and April 20, the temperature in the Capital is expected to remain between 30-33 degrees Celsius.
According to a MET office source, the western disturbance would cause moderate scattered to fairly widespread rain/thundershower activity over Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh from April 15 to 20. It will cause light to moderate, isolated to scattered rain/thundershower activity over Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, western Uttar Pradesh, and adjoining eastern Uttar Pradesh from April 16 to 19.
