Delhi Weather

Dry days have once again gripped Delhi and the infamous scorching Delhi heat is back to swelter the Delhiites. It was last week that rains occurred in Delhi and NCR and brought some relief from the sizzling heat but soon rains bid adieu paving way for dry days to commence.

As of now, this dry spell is expected to continue in parts of Delhi also including Noida, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, and Faridabad as no rains are foreseen in the near future. On account of the dry spell, the maximums will also rise and is most likely to settle close to or more than the 40-degree mark.

Yesterday also, the Palam Observatory witnessed maximum settling at 40°C while the Safdarjung Observatory recorded the daytime high settling at 37.8°C.

As per Skymet Weather, a Western Disturbance is over Jammu and Kashmir and an induced cyclonic circulation is over South Haryana and West Rajasthan. Moreover, a trough is also seen passing from South Uttar Pradesh. Hence, an absence of any significant weather system is the main reason for the absence of rains over Delhi and NCR.


However, since pre-Monsoon activities usually take place during late afternoon or evening hours, so possibilities of some dust storms or thunderstorms during late evening hours cannot be completely ruled out as well.

But overall, this week for Delhi and NCR will remain dry and rains are not anticipated until the next week.
