According to reports, the day will continue to be pleasant with not much climb in temperature profile.

The pre-monsoon rains are expected to give a pleasant weekend to people of Delhi and NCR.

According to Skymet Weather, a cyclonic circulation is seen over North Rajasthan and the adjoining Punjab. The Western Disturbance as an upper air cyclonic circulation is seen over Jammu and Kashmir.

The contribution of all these weather systems is expected to result in rains over Delhi and the adjoining areas.

Temperature is also expected to drop marginally over these areas. These showers will occur in the next four to six hours during the late afternoon hours. These showers will affect the regions for at least 24 hours.

The Skymet further reiterates that if the rain intensity and spread happen to be less over Delhi-NCR, another short spell of rain can also occur during the late night hours.
