New Delhi: Clouded sky greeted Delhiites
on the Valentine`s Day on Monday with chill in the air but the sun came out as the day progressed.
Overcast sky led to increase in minimum temperature as
mercury settled at 14.7 degrees Celsius, a deg above
yesterday`s reading and five notches more than normal.
The MeT office has predicted more rains and thundershowers and the maximum is likely to be in mid 20s
against yesterday`s 28.8 deg C, which signalled possibility of
an early summer.
Weathermen have also forecast isolated hails and squall in the national capital.
According to MeT statistics, the record for the highest maximum for the month of February was 34.1 deg C -- on
the 26th of this month in 2006. The record minimum is 1.6 deg
C on 9th February, 1982.
