Meanwhile, on Tuesday, the maximum and minimum temperatures in Delhi is likely to hover around 24 and 10 degree Celsius respectively. The Safdarjung Observatory, Delhi's primary weather station, recorded a minimum temperature of 12.3 degrees Celsius, around five notches above normal and the highest this month so far, owing to the cloudy weather.
The city had recorded a maximum temperature of 25.9 degrees Celsius on Monday — the highest in the month in four years — news agency PTI reported citing the IMD data.
Clouds trap heat that gets through during the day, keeping night-time temperatures above normal. However, cloudy weather reduces daytime temperatures by preventing exposure to the sun.
Besides Delhi, Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Gilgit-Baltistan region, Muzaffarabad and Himachal Pradesh are likely to see isolated heavy rainfall or snowfall on January 24 and 25, and over Uttarakhand on January 25 and 26.
Haryana and Uttar Pradesh might also experience rainfall on Tuesday. "Thunderstorms with light to moderate intensity rain would occur over and adjoining areas of Rampur, Etah, Ganjdundwara (Uttar Pradesh) and light intensity/intermittent rain over and adjoining areas of Hissar, Barwala (Haryana) during the next 2 hours," the IMD said.
The weather department also said the intensity and distribution of the rainfall over the Western Himalayan Region "is very likely to increase thereafter with fairly widespread to widespread rainfall/snowfall during 24th to 26th January 2023".
