However, the experts are of opinion that a low-pressure area that has formed in the northwest part of the Bay of Bengal – in an area adjoining the Odisha and Gangetic Bengal coasts – may have speeded up the monsoon.

The IMD further added that under the influence of the low-pressure area, most eastern parts of the country, and adjoining areas in central India, were likely to witness fairly widespread rainfall starting today.

Delhiites on Friday experienced a sultry day and the maximum temperature settled at 39 degrees Celsius, a notch below the season’s average. However, the humidity levels oscillated between 91 and 47 per cent, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

Overnight rains brought the mercury down in the national capital and the minimum temperature on Friday was recorded at 20.4 degrees Celsius, eight notches below the season’s average, at the Safdarjung observatory, which is the official marker for the city.

Delhi recorded 7.8 mm rainfall till 8.30 am on Friday. The weatherman has forecast generally cloudy sky with light to moderate rain accompanied with gusty winds for Saturday.
