Temperatures remained above normal in the Capital on Sunday. Despite mild breeze, humidity remained high between 41 and 66 per cent. Safdarjung recorded a maximum of 41.7 degrees Celsius, while Palam recorded 43.5 degrees Celsius — five degrees above normal.

Heat wave-like conditions in Palam occurred despite a light drizzle. Minimum temperature was 30.3 degrees Celsius at both locations, which is three notches above the mean normal at this time of month.

The Meteorological Department has forecast light rain accompanied by thunderstorms before Thursday. Cyclonic systems above Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir are moving North-east wards and are unlikely to have a major impact on the National Capital Region. Cloud cover is expected over Delhi on Monday and is likely to reduce temperatures without inflicting any major change on humidity levels.
