Light rain accompanied by strong winds and hailstorm may return from 13 February and will increase by 14 February, making Valentine's Day, a rain-drenched for Delhiites.

According to Kuldeep Srivastava, Regional Head of the IMD, "Another western disturbance accompanied by moist eastern winds from the Bay of Bengal is likely to hit the northwest plains of the country, like Delhi, from Wednesday night."

“Though, the conditions on Wednesday night will not be much noticeable. But rain accompanied by strong winds, thundershower and hailstorm at isolated places will intensify by Thursday (14 February). These conditions will continue in Delhi till Friday," said Mr. Srivastava.

However, the minimum temperature is expected to rise by 3-4 degrees Celsius between Wednesday and Friday in northwest India. According to IMD bulletin, during the period, the minimum temperature is expected to reach 13 degrees Celsius-4 notches above the season's normal and the maximum temperature is expected to hover around 21 degrees Celsius.

Delhi has been experiencing cold conditions with the minimum temperature dropping to 6 degrees Celsius, three notches below the normal, today. It is due to the recent spell of rain and heavy hailstorm on February 7.

On Monday and Tuesday also, the minimum temperature is expected to remain between 6-7 degrees Celsius, while the maximum temperature might hover around 21-22 degrees Celsius.
The overall AQI of Delhi on Sunday deteriorated to 276 or 'poor' category due to surface inversion, as per System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR).
