Since the last few days, Delhi and its adjoining regions of Noida, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, and Faridabad have been witnessing mostly dry and hot weather conditions. In view of this, Delhi remains rain deficient by 33%as on July 10.
In addition, the maximum temperatures in Delhi have been settling three to five degrees above the normal range. Correspondingly, the minimum temperatures are ranging above normal by two to three degrees Celsius.
Yesterday, Safdarjung observatory recorded a maximum of 39.1°C and Palam observatory 40.6°C.
Now, we expect Monsoon rains to begin over Delhi and NCR from today and these intermittent showers of light intensity would continue till July 15 or 16. In fact, there are possibilities of sporadic moderate showers over the national capital as well.
With these showers, both the maximum as well as minimum temperatures would drop by three to four degrees Celsius. Day temperatures are likely to range in mid 30s, while the minimums will settle in mid 20s. At this time, the weather would turn comfortable that is currently very humid and dry, nonetheless the humidity will still persist.
The reason for these forthcoming showers could be attributed to the northward shift of the axis of Monsoon trough that is at present passing through Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
