After a delayed onset of Monsoon on July 5, Delhiites are still waiting for the typical Monsoon rains. Delhi received its first Monsoon shower on July 5, but then the weather went dry in the city with only light rain in between.
Yesterday, on July 9, sporadic rains were witnessed in Delhi-NCR. These rains remained confined to the northern and eastern parts of Delhi due to a Trough passing from Punjab up to Northeast India. This Trough is now shifting northwards thus, we expect the weather to now become dry in Delhi and NCR.
However, isolated light rain or thunderstorm activities may occur today as well. These rains, however, will be insignificant and patchy in nature. From tomorrow onward the weather will go dry and we do not expect significant rains until July 15 or 16 in Delhi and NCR area.
By July 15, the Trough which would have shifted northwards would once again start shifting southwards towards Delhi. During this short period, we expect a few spells of rain and thundershower. Then onward we expect on and off rains and thundershower activities to continue in Delhi and its adjoining areas for the next two to three days. However, during this period as well we do not expect any widespread activity over the region.
