"We are expecting a fall by at least three to four degrees in the next 24 hours due to the northerly winds' interference. The weather might return to normal in the next three days," said Sunita Devi, director (weather central), IMD.

As per IMD data, the day temperatures have gone up by more than six degrees Celsius in the last six days, and by coming week, temperatures are expected to rise further.
