New Delhi, May 11 (IANS) Although it started warming up by midday, Monday saw a pleasant start to the week in the national capital, with the temperature remaining below average and the Met office forecasting more rain in the coming days.
The maximum temperature recorded Monday was 37.5 degree Celsius, three degrees below the average for this time of the year.

“A western disturbance in Jammu and Kashmir and a cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan brought rain to the capital. Since the disturbances still prevail over the region, there will likely be more rain and thundershowers in the next few days,” an official of the Safdarjung meteorological office said.

There will be partly cloudy skies over most parts of the capital, the official added.

Delhi received 11.2 mm of rain Sunday and this brought down the minimum temperature to 20.6 degrees Celsius, four degrees below the average for this time of the year.

According to the Met department, the maximum and the minimum temperature Tuesday will respectively hover around 39 and 24 degrees Celsius.
