New Delhi: Mercury settled at normal levels in the national capital today giving a marginal respite from above-45 degree temperatures which scorched Delhiites a couple of days ago even as the MeT department predicted possibility of a squall hitting the city tomorrow.

The maximum temperature was recorded at 40.6 degree Celsius which was normal for this part of the season.

Earlier today, Delhiites woke up to a partly cloudy sky with the minimum temperature settling at 28.9 degree Celsius, a notch above normal for the on-going period. During the day relative humidity oscillated between 17 and 55 per cent.

Weatherman has predicted a partly cloudy sky during the day with possibility of dust storm/thunderstorm or a squall hitting the city towards evening.

"This may cause the day temperature to fall below the 40-degree mark and settle around 39 degree Celsius. The minimum temperature may settle around 28 degrees Celsius," a MeT official said.

Mercury had touched 45.5 degrees Celsius on May 25, which was the highest temperature this season.
