New Delhi : The minimum temperature in Delhi on Tuesday was recorded at 24.4 degrees Celsius, three notches below the average, with the India Meteorological Department (IMD) predicting moderate rainfall for the day.

The weatherman has predicted generally cloudy sky with the maximum temperature expected to hover around 31 degrees Celsius.
