The national capital and adjoining areas of Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and Gurugram are likely to receive light rain between March 13 and March 15 due to the movement of a western disturbance around the hills of north India, the India Meteorological Department said.
Scattered rain and snow are also expected over many parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, it said.
According to Skymet, a private weather forecasting agency, "March 16 onward, as the western disturbance moves away eastwards, the weather will become completely dry over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand."
On Monday, Delhi and its adjoining areas witnessed light rain and thundershower activities in the evening.
In the wake of strong winds, the pollution levels have also improved and the Air Quality Index (AQI) in most parts of the city is in the moderate to satisfactory category.
The minimum and maximum temperatures in the city were likely to hover around 15 degrees Celsius and 29 degrees Celsius. The relative humidity will oscillate between 65 per cent to 69 per cent.
