New Delhi, Nov 20 (IANS) A light smattering of rain Thursday brought with it a distinct chill that pulled the minimum temperature down to 16 degrees Celsius in the national capital, probably the first of such damp mornings with the weather office predicting more rain and cold. The capital recorded 3.4 mm of rainfall and the meteorological department forecast more rain and cool winds sweeping north India.
“A low pressure area has developed over northern India. Delhi and neighbouring states can expect more rainfall; the temperature is likely to further decline in coming days,” a meteorological department official said.
The minimum temperature might dip further to 13 degrees Celsius Friday.
“There is a possibility of rain and thundershowers towards evening or night and the sky will be partially clouded. Cool winds are likely to sweep the plains and hilly regions in northern states,” the official said.
A shallow layer of fog will also engulf the capital early Friday morning, the official predicted.
