Rain in Delhi and NCR

Delhi and its adjoining areas of Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad were reeling under heat wave conditions until June 15 but the weather has taken a turn since then and the conditions have become extremely pleasant due to, rain, thundershower activities and dust storm.

During the last 24 hours, many parts of Delhi-NCR witnessed dust storm activity followed by a rainy spell and thundershower that were accompanied by strong gusty winds. Some areas in the city like Ayanagar recorded light rain of 9.4 mm, while Safdarjung and Palam observed 10.6 mm and 3.8 mm of rain, respectively.

In the wake of the weather activities and change of winds, maximum temperatures in most parts of Delhi and NCR dropped significantly. Yesterday, Delhi’s Safdarjung Observatory saw its maximum temperature settle at 33.3˚C, which was 6 degrees below normal, followed by Palam 33.9˚C/-6, Ayanagar 31.4˚C/-8 and Ridge 34˚C/-5.

At present, the Western Disturbance lies over eastern parts of Jammu and Kashmir and its induced cyclonic circulation persists over Haryana and its adjoining areas. Humid winds from the Arabian Sea are still pushing moisture to the northern plains of India including Delhi-NCR.

Therefore, we expect on and off rain and thundershower activities with isolated dust storm and strong winds to continue over parts of Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad for the next 24 hours i.e. till June 19.

Thereafter, the weather conditions will start clearing up, leading to a gradual increase in temperatures over the region. Even though temperatures will not rise suddenly but heat wave making a comeback in Delhi-NCR in the coming week cannot be ruled out.

Thus, we can say that these pre-Monsoon showers will continue over the National Capital Region till the onset of Southwest Monsoon, which is delayed and is expected to arrive in the region during the first week of July.
