The maximum temperature was recorded at 25.2 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature was recorded to be 5.9 degrees Celsius. The MeT office had yesterday predicted partly cloudy skies along with the possibility of moderate fog and light. "The maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to hover at 22 and 9 degrees Celsius," the weatherman had said. The rains played a spoilsport for the Republic Day full dress rehearsal today.
Twenty three trains were also affected, a senior railway ministry official said. Twitter users, however, gave mixed reactions to Delhi's "winter rains". While some were overjoyed, some just wanted to run for cover. Among them were singer Mika Singh and well-known chef Kunal Kapur.
Chef Kunal Kapur tweeted, "Good weather always brings a smile. Rains in delhi winters brrrr I love it & It's chai pakora time. #Kunalish What are you eating today?"
