/R New Delhi, Sep 4 (PTI) Delhiites reeled under sultry weather on Wednesday despite the meteorological office's forecast of rains. The India Meteorological Department had on Tuesday predicted light rains in the Delhi-NCR region due to a shift in the monsoon trough. The city recorded a high of 35.8 degrees Celsius, two notches above the normal, and a low of 28.6 degrees Celsius on Wednesday. Humidity levels shot up 85 per cent. According to Mahesh Palwat of Skymet Weather, a private weather forecasting agency, not much precipitation is likely in the city in the next two days. "However, a fresh spell of rains is expected on September 9 and 10 -- possibly the last showers before the monsoon starts to retreat," he said. PTI GVS CK
