However, now, this weather system has shifted northwards and is presently seen over West Uttar Pradesh and adjoining area. This weather system is expected to shift further northeastwards and will fade away gradually after 24 hours thus leading to a reduction in clouding.

This will further lead to increase in the maximum temperatures which may reach close to 30 degrees once again. However, still comfortable weather will prevail over Delhi and NCR and good rains will once again take a backseat.

In a nutshell, these rains can be the last good rainy spell of the season with the possibility of light isolated patchy showers only.
