During the month of August, the capital of the country has recorded good spells on rare occasions. Both observatories, Palam and Safdarjung remained rain free in the last 24 hours as well.
This weather situation could be attributed to the axis of Monsoon trough that continues to run along the foothills of Himalayas across north of Delhi.
Besides this, westerly winds are blowing over the region and as these winds are coming from west, they are less humid, resulting in dry weather.
As per weathermen at Skymet Weather, rain and thundershowers are not expected over Delhi for at least next 2 to 3 days. Also, not much change in temperature profile is anticipated.
By August 19, the axis of Monsoon trough may shift towards south of Delhi, that may result in some good spells of rains over the capital of the country with its adjoining regions. Moreover, a cyclonic circulation is also expected over western parts of Uttar Pradesh.
During that time, with change in wind pattern from westerly to easterlies, day and night temperatures may plummet a few notches and the humidity levels are likely to increase.
