New Delhi: The mercury remained several
degrees below normal in the capital on Friday but Delhiites did
not get much relief as the humidity was on the higher side.
The maximum was recorded at 35.6 degree Celsius, which
is five degrees below normal at this time of the year, as
against yesterday`s 35.5 degrees. The city also experienced
dust storms.

the higher side with the maximum at 63 per cent and minimum at
48 per cent.
The minimum temperature was recorded at 28.6 degree
Celsius, three degrees above normal.
