The national capital is likely to witness isolated light showers in parts of the city on January 29, with the maximum temperature likely to stay at 17 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature dipping to 11 degrees Celsius.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) is expecting cloudy skies with light rain and thunderstorms in the city. Meanwhile, Kuldeep Srivastava, a scientist at IMD, said: “The temperature will rise from Sunday due to a new western disturbance and we may see isolated light showers.”

According to the Safdarjung Observatory, Delhi recorded a minimum temperature of 6.1 degrees Celsius on Saturday, 3 degrees below the normal temperature during this time. While a maximum temperature of 23.8 degrees Celsius was observed.

According to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) 4pm bulletin, Delhi noted an Air Quality Index (AQI) of 236 on Saturday and continued to remain in the ‘poor’ category. An AQI of 0-50 is considered ‘good’, 51-100 ‘satisfactory’, 101-200 ‘moderate’, 201-300 ‘poor’, 301-400 ‘very poor’ and 401-500 ‘severe’. Above 500 is the ‘severe-plus or emergency’ category.

The air quality index is a tool for effectively communicating the state of air quality to people in terms that are easy to understand. Transforms complex air quality data from multiple pollutants into a single number (index value), nomenclature, and color.

On Twitter on Saturday, IMD predicted a “wet spell in North West India on 29-30 January 2023.” He wrote: “Press release: i) Wet spell over north-western India during 29-30 January 2023. ii) Intensifying low pressure area over south-eastern Bay of Bengal and adjacent eastern equatorial Indian Ocean a depression over the southwestern Bay of Bengal around 31 January 2023″.

The weather department has forecast “scattered to fairly widespread light/moderate rain over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and West Uttar Pradesh on 29-30” and “isolated to scattered light/moderate rain over eastern Uttar Pradesh on 29-30 and over Rajasthan on 28 and 29′.
