Holi is a festival of colours which is not only celebrated in India but has now become popular internationally as well. The festival of colours is celebrated pan India to welcome the spring season. It is observed on full moon as per our Hindu Calendar, which invariably falls in March. Last year it was observed on March 2 and this year it will be celebrated on March 21. We are still a week away from the celebration of this festival.
There is a section of society which still believes that it generally rains on this day. However, in North India this time, this belief is getting little closer to the truth. The winters is getting extended, as we see series of wet spells are continuing. Delhi and adjoining neighbourhood areas would witness rain and thundershower activities, today and tomorrow, i.e. on March 13 and March 14.
The experts have to say that there are chances of rain and thundershowers a day prior to Holi as well,i.e. March 20, simply because of passage of Western Disturbances. Whenever the temperatures are at a little higher side, it allows the moisture to hold and help in cloud formation as well. Thus, resulting in rains. The wet spells stand a chance during the forenoon hours.
The festival of Holi is a whole day affair for few people. The weathermen at Skymet have to say that reaching the mark of 30°C at the time of Holi seems less. Sunny days with windy conditions are a precursor to the onset of pre-Monsoon season. So, even if the winds would persist, they would restrict the rise in mercury. Thus, Delhi and adjoining neighborhood areas like Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad, and Faridabad is expected to witness a pleasant weather with one or two short spells of rain during the celebration of Holi.
