Delhi witnessed two back to back rainy days that resulted in making the weather conditions of the national capital pleasant. In fact, the rains were pouring over the city since Wednesday morning that continued with occasional breaks until the late evening hours in parts.

In the last 24 hours, Delhi’s Safdarjung Observatory recorded 16.2 mm of rains meanwhile, Palam Observatory recorded 21 mm of Monsoon rains. Other observatories like Ridge recorded a whopping 42.6 mm of rains, however, rains were light as observed by Ayanagar Observatory at 1.6 mm.

Counting on these rains, Delhi’s Safdarjung Observatory has so far recorded a total of 206.5mm of rains against its monthly mean of 232.5 mm, meanwhile, against a monthly normal of 188.7 mm, Delhi’s Palam observatory has already scored a total of 182.2mm of rains. Hence, it can be said that Delhi is lagging by just a few notches to be able to cross its monthly mark which however now seems a bit unfortunate.

As per Skymet Weather, the fluctuation of the axis of Monsoon trough is influencing the Monsoon rains over the city and its adjoining Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad, and Faridabad.

At present, the axis of Monsoon trough is running via Delhi which resulted in rains over the city for the last 48 hours. As of now, we expect the axis of Monsoon trough to shift gradually north of Delhi. This would thereby result in reducing the rain activity over Delhi and NCR.

Therefore, the weather would become almost dry for the next two days, however, isolated spot rains cannot be ruled out. In the wake of reduction in the rain activities, the temperatures may also increase during the next 2 days and may reach in mid-30’s.

Thereafter, around September 1, we expect the formation of a cyclonic circulation over the western parts of Uttar Pradesh and thus, Delhi may also get few good spells of rains between September 1 and 3.
