Here’s some heart-warming news. The unseasonal cold wave that had been chilling the Capital to its bone since Republic Day was finally over on Sunday, said the Met department. Delhiites might have woken up to an overcast sky on Sunday, but the cloud cover brought with it a much-needed respite from the freezing cold.
The clouds pushed the mercury up by seven degrees and the minimum temperature was 9.8 degrees Celsius. The temperature was one degree above the normal temperature for this time of the year. Saturday had witnessed a low of 2.9 degrees Celsius. The maximum temperature was recorded at 19.4 degrees Celsius on Sunday, three notches below normal.
The weatherman forecasts a rise in minimum temperature on Monday. “The cold wave is now over and for the next five days, there is no chance of it making a comeback,” said SC Bhan, Director, India Meteorological Department.
