After very good rain showers on Friday, the capital city, Delhi has been reeling under hot weather conditions since yesterday. During the last 24 hours, dry and warm weather prevailed over the entire region including NCR regions of Gurugram, Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.
Yesterday, Palam observatory recorded its maximum temperature at 37.4˚C, Safdarjung observatory recorded its day temperature at 37.3°C. Ayanagar and Ridge also recorded their maximum temperatures at 38.0°C and 38.1°C, respectively.
The axis of Monsoon trough has further moved towards north and now runs along the foothills. The western disturbance has also moved away. Dry northwesterly are also expected to move over Delhi and adjoining states.
Day temperatures are expected to rise marginally and may settle between 38 – 39. But due to northwesterly winds we expect the humidity levels to increase over the region, causing uneasy and uncomfortable weather conditions. Nights will be warm with clear sky conditions.
However, patchy clouds are expected to develop over few pockets tomorrow afternoon.
Easterly moist components are expected over Delhi region by July 9. Thus, by later parts of July 9 and July 10, rains may make a comeback over the city and give relief from the ongoing warm weather conditions.
