Delhiites were delighted to witness the pre-Monsoon showers that lashed the state recently giving them the much-awaited relief from the hot and dry weather conditions. The uncomfortable and scorching summer heat soon was taken over by pleasant weather that even forced people residing in Delhi and NCR to step out and enjoy the rains.
Though after offering a rainy weekend, these pre-Monsoon spells soon ended thereby paving way for the dry weather to stretch its leg over Delhi and NCR once again. Moreover, these dry spells are expected to continue over the national capital including adjoining regions like Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.
Skymet Weather reiterates that the recent rainy spells were due to a trough that was running from Central Pakistan to the eastern parts of the country across Delhi-NCR and Uttar Pradesh. A cyclonic circulation was also seen over the western parts of Rajasthan.
The combination of these weather systems resulted in rains over Delhi and NCR. Though at present, the aforesaid trough has shifted over Central Delhi and can be seen running over the central parts of the country, from West Rajasthan to Gangetic West Bengal across Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Odisha.
On account of this shifting of the trough, the rain belt will also shift towards Central India and thus states like Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Odisha are likely to witness pre-Monsoon showers Delhi along with parts of Northwest India will remain arid.
Additionally, the South-southwesterly winds are also blowing over the region that will lead to an increase in the day temperatures. As the recent showers had also left moisture in the atmosphere, discomfort levels is also enhanced over the national capital and adjoining regions.
Skymet Weather further does not anticipate the possibility of any rains as of now. In fact, the dry weather in the absence of rains is likely to prevail for another 24-48 hours. Mercury will also shoot up and is likely to settle beyond the 40-degree mark. Moreover, until the next rainy episode which are scheduled to happen around June 7, Delhiites have to bear with the hot and dry days. Though isolated pre-Monsoon rains cannot be completely ruled out.
