It's been a poor Monsoon season for Delhi so far. There has rarely been an occasion when the city has actually observed good rain. According to the meteorological data available with Skymet the annual rainfall for the National capital Delhi is 762 mm out of which 90% of the rain is recorded during the Monsoon season from June to September.
July and August are the core months with over 50% of rainfall being recorded in these two months alone. But Monsoon performed pathetically in June and the start of July hasn't been promising either.
The month of June that observes 82.5 mm of rain recorded a meagre 11.5 mm of rainfall, which is 86% deficient. While July so far has observed only 27 mm of rain against the monthly normal of 187.3 mm. The June 1 to July 10 deficiency in Delhi is a whopping 88%, which makes it the driest Monsson period in Delhi.
Looking at Delhi minutely, there are eight meteorological divisions out of which five are observing a rainfall deficiency of more than 90%. In Central Delhi, there has practically been no rain. Below is a table depicting deficiency in all the divisions of the city.
And the forecast for the city does not look bright. According to meteorologists at Skymet, the weather in Delhi is going to remain almost dry for about a week. Between July 15 and July 17 there would be some patchy rain but of very less significance. Some moderate showers in the city will be witnessed only between July 18 and July 19 but will it cover up the deficiency to a large extent is a question.
