Delhi Rains-The Hindu 600

Updated on April 15 at 1800 hours

Today on April 15, Delhi witnessed it's first highest for this season both at Palam and Safdarjung Observatories. Palam recorded 41˚C while Safdarjung Observatory recorded 40˚C. However, good news is that in the wake of weather systems significant fall in mercury would be witnessed in the coming two days. It is expected that the temperatures can dip by four to five degrees and would settle somewhere around 32˚C to 34˚C.

Updated on April 15 at 1430 hours: Dust storm, rain in Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad to bring relief from heat

Delhi and its adjoining areas such as Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad have been observing dry and heat wave like conditions since the last few days. Yesterday the maximum temperature recorded by Delhi’s Safdarjung Observatory was 38.1˚C.

Now a fresh Western Disturbance is approaching the Western Himalayas and it has induced a cyclonic circulation over parts of Rajasthan.

Therefore, today during the late evening or night hours, we expect patchy rains along with dust storm to occur in parts of Delhi and NCR. However, gradually by tomorrow the intensity and spread of these weather activities will increase.

Thus, on April 16 and 17, we expect widespread rain and thundershowers with dust storm, thunderstorm and strong winds to affect many parts of Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.

In the wake of rains, both day and night temperatures over Delhi-NCR will drop. In fact, tomorrow and day after we can expect the National Capital Regions day temperatures to settle between 32˚C to 34˚C, which will be almost 5˚C below normal.

Further, from April 18 rains will start reducing and finally vacate the region by April 19. Thus, we can say that first good spell of rain and thundershowers is likely to occur over Delhi and NCR in the coming days, as we can even expect some intense showers in few pockets.
