Giving some hope of relief from scorching heat, Mahesh Palawat, Chief Meteorologist at Skymet Weather Services, said that Delhiites and NCR people can expect light spell by August 28th or 29th .
"This is the longest dry spell in last one decade, this is also the effect of El-nino. I think by 28th or 29 cyclonic circulation will take place over Delhi and Haryana, with light precipitation and light rain," said Mahesh Palawat.
However Palawat added that the light spell of rains will bring discomfort along with it, with the increase in humidity.
Palawat added, "Now the winds are westernly and these are dry winds, so the moisture is also less. So, despite high temperature the discomfort level is less, as the humidity is less. And this is due to clear sky. But in the coming days, when the wind will change its direction then humidity will increase and there are chances of light rains and then there will be some relief from high temperature, but again discomfort level will increase due to increase in moisture level," said Palawat.
