NEW DELHI: Delhi’s minimum temperature settled four notches above normal at 10.8 degrees Celsius on Saturday, the India Meteorological Department said.  

The minimum temperature in the city has remained above normal since January 3 as a result of cloud cover under the influence of western disturbances.

However, the minimum temperature is likely to dip by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius with the commencement of northwesterly winds from snow-capped mountains towards the plains starting Saturday, the IMD said.

The Safdarjung Observatory, which provides representative data for the city, had recorded a minimum temperature of 9.6 degrees Celsius on Friday and 14.4 degrees Celsius on Thursday, the highest in January in four years, according to the IMD.
