delhi temperature: Delhi night temperature seen touching 8-9 degrees in next one week


Night temperatures in Delhi will likely be touching 8-9 degrees over the next week, Met department officials said. Cold northwesterly winds blowing in from the Himalayas are causing this drop, they added.

On Monday, the capital city saw the coldest night of the season, with minimum temperature falling to 8.9 degrees Celsius. It was three degrees below normal.

This season’s previous lowest minimum temperature was recorded on Friday at 9 degrees Celsius (reading from Safdarjung, the city’s base station).

Meanwhile, with AQI at 310, the air quality remained in the “very poor” zone.
Tuesday through Wednesday, night temperature in the capital city is being seen at around 9 degrees Celsius.

It may fall to 8 degrees from Thursday through Sunday, the Met department said.

There could be mist in the morning for the next seven days, officials added.

On Monday, the maximum temperature was recorded at 27.3 degrees Celsius, which was one degree below normal. Over the next few days, the maximum is seen hovering around 26-27 degrees Celsius.

As for the air quality in Delhi, according to Indian Agricultural Research Institute, 243 paddy residue burnings were detected in Punjab, 11 in Haryana and 46 in Uttar Pradesh on Monday.

The share of stubble burning in Delhi’s PM2.5 on Monday was at 6%, said central forecasting body System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR)

According to SAFAR, “Local surface winds being moderate (12-16km/h) cause moderate dispersion while drop in minimum temperature helps in accumulation of pollutants. AQI is likely to be in the ‘poor’ or ‘lower end of very poor’ categories for the next three days due to net effect of inflow of pollutants and local dispersion and ventilation”.
