Therefore, it's expected that the maximum temperature on Saturday will be around 24 degrees Celsius, and the minimum temperature will be around 15 degrees Celsius.

What is Hailstorm?

A hailstorm happens when small balls of ice fall from the sky during a thunderstorm. These ice balls, called hailstones, can range from tiny pellets to as big as golf balls. Hail forms when raindrops get carried up into really cold parts of the clouds, where they freeze into ice. Then, strong winds in the storm clouds toss the ice around, making it grow bigger before it finally falls to the ground. Hailstorms can be scary and cause damage to crops, buildings, and cars, so it's important to stay safe indoors when one is happening.

Relief from Air pollution

The air quality index (AQI) in the capital remains in the moderate category due to increased wind speed and direction change. According to the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), the wind blew from the south-west to east on Friday.
Considering the changing weather pattern, the weather department had issued an alert for two days. Additionally, a decrease in both minimum and maximum temperatures in the district has been predicted. Consequently, there might be an increase in the number of viral patients admitted to hospitals.
