Dust storm, thunderstorm and rain in Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad likely today

May 23, 2019 11:25 AM |

Presently, a Western Disturbance is approaching the hills of North India and its induced cyclonic circulation has formed over parts of West Rajasthan. Therefore, we expect dust storm and thunderstorm activities followed by rains to occur in parts of Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.

On May 23 and 24, the National Capital Region will be experiencing scattered pre-Monsoon weather activities in the form of dust storm, thunderstorm, rain, thundershowers and strong winds. But due to near normal temperatures, hailstorm activity will not take places over the region.

Thereafter, from May 25, the weather will start clearing up from most parts of Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad. Temperatures will then start rising and heat wave like conditions may be witnessed in the National Capital Region in the coming week.

As predicted by Skymet Weather, during the last 24 hours, partly cloudy to cloudy conditions prevailed over most parts of Delhi and NCR area. However, no significant weather activity was witnessed.

Since the last five days, dry weather conditions are being observed in the National Capital Region. Even though the adjoining parts of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh are witnessing pre-Monsoon activities, but no activity has occurred in Delhi-NCR. But these are helping to keep the temperatures near normal.

May is the peak pre-Monsoon month for Delhi and its adjoining areas. However, this season the region has hardly experienced any major pre-Monsoon weather activities. On May 13, 2018 – the National Capital Region had witnessed violent pre-Monsoon weather activities wherein Safdarjung had observed gusty winds of 107 kmph and Palam 95 kmph, followed by heavy rains.

However, the pre-Monsoon season this year has been calmer. And temperatures in Delhi and NCR have been under check due to successive weather systems like Western Disturbances and Cyclonic Circulations. The highest recorded temperature for Delhi was on April 30 at 43.7˚C. Since then heat has spared the region.
