Weather Update: The national capital is expected to have moderate rainfall on Sunday (January 29) according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD). Additionally, the sky will remain cloudy for the following four to five days.

The weather department said that a recent western disturbance may bring light rain in the National Capital and neighboring regions on January 29.

This winter season, there hasn't been any rain in the city yet. It was attributed by the meteorological department to the absence of significant western disturbances in November and December.

The city had seen the most January rainfall since 1901 last year when 82.2 mm poured in the month.

As per reports, Mahesh Palawat of Skymet Weather Services had predicted, that Delhi's minimum temperature may dip over the next two days.

"The highest temperature today dropped by about 4 degrees, as predicted. While January 25 had a high temperature of 21.6 degrees Celsius, January 26 witnessed a low of 17.3 degrees Celsius. The lowest temperature was 12.8 degrees. In the upcoming two days, the lowest temperature might dip " he said.

According to SAFAR, the national capital's overall Air Quality Index (AQI) was 276 as of 6 am, placing it in the poor category. At Noida, the AQI was 304, while Delhi T3 airport recorded a very low AQI of 306. An AQI of 0 to 50 is regarded as "good," 51 to 100 as "satisfactory," 101 to 200 as "moderate," 201 to 300 as "poor," 301 to 400 as "very poor," and 401 to 500 as "severe."

According to IMD, the highest temperature on Thursday was 17.3 degrees Celsius, which is five degrees below the season average.

On Thursday, there were reports of shallow fog in certain areas of the capital.

The lowest temperature in Delhi has been at a pleasant level for about a week due to cloudy weather brought on by a western disturbance impacting northwest India.

The heat that leaves during the day is trapped by clouds, maintaining nighttime temperatures above normal. On the other hand, cloudy weather lowers daytime temperatures by shielding individuals from the sun.

According to IMD statistics, the city experienced two severe cold wave spells: January 5 to 9 and January 16 to 18. However, no cold days were recorded by it.

Additionally, Delhi has experienced the most intense fog in this month—over 50 hours—since 2019.

Not only that, but during the following four to five days, westerly and south-westerly winds will cause mild to moderate rain in one or two locations in Telangana. It also indicated that Hyderabad and surrounding areas will likely have clear skies and light rain.
