Delhi and NCR weather--Dev 600

As predicted by Skymet Weather, another spell of rain and thundershowers have started lashing many parts of Delhi and adjoining areas of Faridabad, Noida, Ghaziabad and Gurugram.

Intense thunderclouds had engulfed the national capital region during the afternoon hours, with dust storm and rains following shortly. There was significant drop in mercury from 27°C to 25°C, making the weather extremely pleasant.  According to weathermen, pre-Monsoon activties would stay over Delhi-NCR for the next couple of hours.

Weather systems are likely to move away from Delhi by tomorrow. Thus, temperatures will increase over Delhi tomorrow onward and clear bright skies due to change in winds direction from Easterly to Northwesterly. However, one or two isolated spell of dust storm or thundershowers cannot be ruled out tommorrow as well.

The capital city of Delhi and adjoining areas of  has witnessed contrasting weather during the last two to three days. On April 15, temperatures over Delhi, had touched the 40-degree mark, while April 16 saw widespread dust-storm, thundershower and rains lashing the region.

In the wake of these weather activities, the day temperatures witnessed a drop of 8 to 9 degrees on the April 16. Yesterday, Palam recorded 32°C of maximum temperatures. Due to this, weather during night became extremely pleasant in Delhi after long wherein the minimums dropped by four to five degrees.

Pre-monsoon season spans from March to May in India. Now, we have entered in the second month of pre-Monsoon. This year, Delhi did not witness any significant weather activity as the temperatures mainly remained below the normal mark during March. The pre-Monsoon activities intensify whenever temperatures are high and humidity increases which was the case on April 16.

We don’t expect heat wave to make a comeback anytime soon. Temperatures will once again reach higher 30s in the next 48 hours.
