Chilly winds make a comeback
Cold winds greeted Delhiites on Wednesday morning with the maximum temperature only touching 19 degree Celsius, three degrees below normal. The minimum was 8.5 degree Celsius.
With the clear weather, the weatherman has predicted that night temperature will go down by a couple of degrees in the coming days.
"The sky was clear on Wednesday and it will remain so for the next couple of days. This will lead to the fall in the night temperature," said a senior met official at the Indian meteorological department.
The met department has also predicted ground frost to occur at a few places over Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh during the next two nights which will keep the Capital cold through the week. But the Capital will start getting warmer from next week as western disturbances have been predicted, according to the met department.
"It suddenly turned colder on Wednesday morning with chilly winds. But it again became warm in the afternoon. The unusual weather has made me sick," said Shreya Sherawat, a Delhiite.
The mornings are expected to be misty and there are chances of shallow to moderate fog at the airport due to windy conditions.
"Cold wave to severe cold wave conditions is prevailing over many places in Punjab and Rajasthan and at isolated pockets of Haryana, which has reflected sharply in the Capital's climate. They are likely to continue during the next two days and extend into some more parts of the region," the officer added.
