Rain in Delhi

As predicted by Skymet weather, Delhi rains finally made an appearance on Friday night after playing hide and seek for the entire day. Although clouding was seen throughout the day, but rains remained in hiding. The spell of rains was preceded with dust storm, accompanied with lightning strikes.

Rains made an entry from the southern parts of the city along with parts of adjoining Gurugram and Faridabad. Gradually rains covered rest parts of the national capital and adjoining Noida and Ghaziabad.

According to weather intense cloud build up was seen from evening hours, with rains arriving by night. These pre-Monsoon activities are likely to continue for the next couple of hours and clearing thereafter.

Weather has gone extremely pleasant, bringing in respite from warm weather. For the last 3-4 days, Delhi-NCR had been witnessing light rains, which has kept the temperatures under check. These rains can be attributed to a Western Disturbance over Jammu and Kashmir which had induced a cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan and adjoining areas of Haryana and Punjab.

According to weathermen, both the systems are likely to weaken and thus rains would vacate the city during the next 24 hours. However, availability of moisture in the atmosphere might give some isolated rains.

Rain in Delhi would take a short break and but would return soon by May 23 when another Western Disturbance and its induced cyclonic circulation would affect North India. The system looks strong and might give some intense rains over Delhi-NCR.
