New Delhi: Hot and dry weather prevailed in the national capital Thursday, with the Met office predicting similar conditions for another two-three days.

The city recorded a high of 41.2 degrees Celsius, two notches more than normal, and a low of 29 degrees Celsius. Humidity levels oscillated between 31 and 61 per cent, a Met official said.

Similar conditions are likely to prevail for another two-three days. Dust-raising winds gusting up to 40 kilometers per hour would keep the maximum temperature between 41 and 43 degrees Celsius, Kuldeep Srivastava, a senior scientist at the India Meteorological Department, said.

The city may witness a partly cloudy sky but there would be no rain activity for the next two days.

A cyclonic circulation over western Rajasthan and a western disturbance is likely to start affecting weather in the desert state, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and western Uttar Pradesh Sunday onwards.

A dust storm and thunderstorm activity is likely on Sunday evening and light rain and thunderstorm on Monday, he said.
