Rain in Delhi

Voila! Rains finally paid a visit and Delhiites can now look forward to a comfortable Sunday.

Talking about the weather systems wherein the Western Disturbance is moving across Jammu and Kashmir as an upper-air system and the Trough in the upper air from the Northeast Arabian Sea to Haryana lies between 2.1 km and 3.6 km. In wake of these systems, thunder clouds developed over Delhi and NCR and the temperature rose above normal and touched 37 degrees at Palam. Therefore, it triggered the development of thunderclouds over the region.

A short spell of thundershower activities was observed over some places of Delhi wherein Palam and Safdarjung in a span of one hour from 1630 hours to 1730 hours recorded 33 mm and 23 mm of rainfall, respectively. At the time of activity, the wind speed reached up to 50 km with a gust.

These intense showers brought down the visibility to 500 metres at the Indira Gandhi National Airport. Also, these rains have helped in bringing down the mercury and at present the temperature over Palam is 24 degrees, showing a crisp and visible drop of 13 degrees. As per our experts, this sort of activity is expected even tomorrow over some parts of Delhi and NCR.

In the coming week, we expect occasional light rain activities over Delhi and NCR. Also, the temperatures will be somewhere close to the normal and as the easterlies will continue to persist, humid conditions will prevail.
