New Delhi, March 13 (IANS) It was cloudy and overcast throughout the northern plains from Chandigarh to Guwahati Thursday as the region enjoyed another day of breezy and pleasant weather. The national capital was again a comfortable 30 degrees Celsius. It was a kind of weather that drove people in hordes to parks, and the picnic spots around the city were packed to the brim.

Even though it appeared it could rain anytime, the rain god held back. Though there was an odd sprinkle here and there, but not enough to be called a drizzle. The day’s low was 16 degrees Celsius - as it has been for most of the last week.
