People are still questioning about the arrival of Monsoon in Delhi. Well, the Monsoon made an onset in Delhi and NCR after a delay of six days on July 5. Scattered rains were seen in and around Delhi on July 5 and thereafter the weather turned dry.
At present, a Trough is extending from Punjab up to Uttar Pradesh across Delhi, hence scattered light to moderate rains will be seen today and tomorrow in Delhi and its neighbouring areas. Thereafter, the Trough would shift towards the foothills of the Himalayas. With the shifting of the Trough, the foothills of the Himalayas like the northwest Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Himachal Pradesh would see intense rain and thundershowers.
After 24 to 48 hours, the weather in Delhi will turn dry and the winds will then change their course and start blowing from west/southwest direction leading to a decrease in humidity levels. The temperature may begin to rise again and to record 40 degrees Celsius or beyond.
According to meteorologists, there is no significant rainfall activity for four to five days post-July 10. However, localised weather conditions might give birth to isolated spells. Another spell of rain and thundershower is expected in Delhi and NCR area around July 17 when the Trough will shift Southwards and make a move from the foothills. During this period, the weather will again become comfortable with a drop in temperatures.
It will not be incorrect to say that Delhiites will not see torrential rains for at least the third week of July.
