Hu­mid­ity mess un­der cloudy skies

The Political and Business Daily - - METRO -

CLOUDY skies for the bet­ter part of the day kept the mer­cury within nor­mal lev­els in Delhi but caused a prob­lem of hu­mid­ity for the res­i­dents of the na­tional cap­i­tal to­day.

The day tem­per­a­ture was recorded at 34 de­grees Cel­sius in Delhi, which is nor­mal for this part of the year, and al­most iden­ti­cal to yes­ter­day's 34.1 de­grees.

But hu­mid­ity lev­els os­cil­lated be­tween 58 and 88 per cent, mak­ing for sweaty con­di­tions in the city dur­ing the day.

Ear­lier, cloudy skies greeted Del­hi­ites in the morn­ing as the min­i­mum tem­per­a­ture was recorded at 27 de­grees, again nor­mal for the time of the year.

The min­i­mum yes­ter­day was at 28.2 de­grees, a notch above nor­mal.

The weath­er­man has pre­dicted gen­er­ally cloudy skies with the pos­si­bil­ity of thun­der­storms in some parts of the city to­mor­row.

"The max­i­mum and min­i­mum is ex­pected to set­tle at around 34 and 26 de­grees, re­spec­tively," the MeT of­fice said.
