Delhi rains to reduce now, isolated showers likely

September 4, 2018 6:11 PM |


Since last two to three days, Delhi and NCR have been receiving moderate to heavy showers although isolated pockets have received extremely heavy rains. In the past 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday, Safdarjung saw a whopping 41.6 mm rains, Ayanagar received 7 mm rainfall, Palam 1.6 mm, Ridge 5.9 mm.

Reason for these good rains can be attributed to the axis of Monsoon trough which is running in the close vicinity of Delhi and NCR. Moreover, a cyclonic circulation is also persisting over North Haryana and adjoining area and another cyclonic circulation is over Southwest Uttar Pradesh.

The combined effect of these weather systems is seen over Delhi in terms of heavy rains. Now we expect the cyclonic circulation will persist over Haryana and adjoining areas and the axis of monsoon will move slightly towards the north of Delhi, therefore we expect short spells of rain and thundershowers to continue over Delhi for another 24 hours. Thereafter intensity of rain will decrease but isolated rain will continue. The weather will start clearing up by next week. From September 10 onward, we can expect absolutely dry and sunny weather.

Haze is expected during morning and evening hours for the next 2-3 days.
