The much-awaited Monsoon rain in Delhi is finally making its presence felt since the last two days. The Palam observatory has recorded 58 mm of rainfall, during the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday. In fact, this has been the heaviest spell of the Monsoon season so far. While, the other observatory i.e. Safdarjung has recorded only 10 mm of rains, during the same span.
At present, the Monsoon Trough is passing via the National Capital Territory. In the wake of this system, the rainfall activities have increased and we expect on and off rains to continue for another 24 to 48 hours. During this period, chances of a few intense spells of Monsoon showers cannot be ruled out.
The rains will help in keeping the weather pleasant along with cloudy to overcast sky. Also, these showers will keep a check on the temperatures.
After 48 hours, the Monsoon Trough will start shifting northwards once again, thus leading to an increase in the rainfall activities over northern parts of Punjab, Haryana and Northwest Uttar Pradesh. However, this will lead to a reduction in the Monsoon rains over Delhi and NCR area. But, the isolated localised spell of rain may occur due to the presence of high humidity in the atmosphere. Moreover, the convective clouds may develop, thus giving on and off short spells of rain.
Once the rains taper over the region and further make an exit, the temperatures will again rise, thus setting in warm, humid and uncomfortable weather.
