Monsoon rains in Delhi and NCR

Post heavy showers across Delhi and NCR on July 21, the rain deficiency in the region has come down from 78% to 64%. Presently, the axis of Monsoon Trough is running South of Delhi via Rajasthan and North Madhya Pradesh. As a result, humid easterly winds are blowing across Delhi and NCR and the capital is still reeling under high temperatures.

These high temperatures in association with high humidity levels at times give rise to thunder clouds. Hence, parts of Delhi and NCR have been receiving short yet intense spells of rain and thundershowers on an intermittent basis. According to weathermen at Skymet, similar activity is expected in Delhi-NCR today as well.

The axis of Monsoon Trough is now likely to gradually start shifting northwards, thus, the intensity and spread of rain is likely to increase by tomorrow, July 24. However, heavy spells of rain and thundershowers will be a sight over Delhi and NCR on July 25 and July 26.

During this period, temperatures will drop and sky conditions will become cloudy due to which comfortable westher conditions will prevail. Heavy rains might cause water-logging and affect traffic in many areas of Delhi and NCR.

It is very likely that Delhi and NCR might see one of the heaviest spells on July 25 and July 26. By July 27 the weather activity will start to subside. Due to the moisture availability in the atmosphere, intermittent rain and thundershowers in Delhi and NCR are likely to continue till the end of July and marginal relief from hot and humid weather can be experienced.
