The mercury slipped a few notches in the national capital on Saturday, a day after a dust storm hit Delhi-NCR region.

The temperature decline brought cheers for Delhiites who were bearing the brunt of the extremely hot conditions.

The minimum temperature was recorded at 26.6 degrees Celsius, one notch below the normal. 

The maximum temperature was 38.3 degrees Celsius, two notches below the average in the season, said a MeT official. 

Relative humidity oscillated from 38 per cent to 60 per cent. 

On Sunday, the day is forecast to remain clear but thunderstorm or dust storm may occur in the evening and night, the official said.
