New Delhi, June 1 (IANS) Delhiites will continue to enjoy a respite from the heat with thundershowers and squalls forecast for Monday. Temperatures are likely to stay five to six degrees below average, a meteorological official said.
“There is possibility of rain and thundershower accompanied by hail or squall,” an official at the India Meteorological Department told IANS.

Upper cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan where a low pressure zone has developed is the reason for the thundershowers, the official said.

Temperatures are likely to stay lower than average. The maximum would be 35 degrees Celsius, six degrees below normal and the minimum would be around 23 degrees Celsius, five notches below average.

“Humidity was high Sunday and is likely to stay high with the maximum expected to reach 96 percent,” the official added.
