Rainfall activity in Delhi-NCR is going to take a short break by end of today. Partly cloudy conditions with some sunshine will be observed for the next two days. Thereafter, from February 18 another spell of Western Disturbance is going to affect the hills due to which rainfall activity with chances of hailstorm will again be observed in Delhi and its adjoining areas.

Updated on February 14 at 9:10 am: Delhi rains begin, hailstorm to follow 

There cannot be a better start to the Valentines Day other than this rainy morning. Delhi rains have returned and returned with a bang. Intense clouding was seen over entire Delhi-NCR, with rains following soon.

An active Western Disturbance is seen over the northern hills and its induced cyclonic circulation lies over Northwest Rajasthan and adjoining areas. A trough is also extending from this system up to North Madhya Pradesh across Delhi and its nearby regions. In the wake of these weather systems, convective clouds had developed over Delhi  and nearby places such as Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.

At present as well, intense spells of heavy rain and thundershowers are being observed over many parts of South Delhi, Noida, Gurugram and Faridabad. We expect these on and off rain and thundershowers to continue throughout the day over many parts of the national capital region.

As the convective clouds are intense and their top is reaching up to 8-9 km, there are chances for the occurrence of heavy hailstorm activity over few parts of the city. Whenever, the top of clouds reaches up to 8 or 9 km, they are capable of giving heavy hailstorm activities.

On February 15, as the weather systems will move eastwards, we expect rain and thundershower activities over Delhi-NCR to reduce. By tomorrow evening weather over the region will start clearing up.

However, February 16 onwards, weather in Delhi-NCR will become completely dry. In fact, due to the commencement of icy cold winds from the hills of North India, minimum temperatures over the region will starts reducing.
