New Delhi: The National Capital region is expected to get showers over the weekend even as temperatures crossed the 40 degrees Celsius mark on Friday, the Regional Weather Forecasting Centre (RWFC) said.

“A trough is being formed at the foothills of Uttar Pradesh which will gradually move towards Delhi in the coming two days, leading to showers during the weekend," said Mahesh Palwat, chief meteorologist at private weather forecaster Skymet.

Although the minimum temperature will hover around 28 degrees celsius during the weekend, the maximum will be only slightly lower than the 40 degrees celsius mark.

RWFC has indicated the possibility of rain on Monday, with the maximum temperature remaining slightly below the 40 degree celsius mark. The maximum temperature through next week will also remain close to 40 degrees celsius.
