Capital cool after light drizzleMarch 20th, 2009 - 11:42 am ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 20 (IANS) The eve of the spring equinox brought welcome relief from the fast-advancing summer to residents of the capital Friday. A light drizzle from the dark clouds overhead at least helped the dust to settle down a bit.
The weatherman held out hope for a cool weekend. “The weather here has changed suddenly because of the cyclonic disturbances over adjoining areas of Delhi. We expect light rainfall over the next 48 hours,” an official of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) told IANS.
According to the official, the “cyclonic disturbances” are over Jammu and Kashmir, central Pakistan and northwest Rajasthan.
The minimum temperature recorded in the early hours of Friday was still 17.6 degrees Celsius, a good three degrees above average for this time of the year.
