After a prolonged dry spell, Delhi and its adjoining areas such as Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad, and Faridabad finally observed good rain and thundershower activities yesterday. And Delhiites finally got to see some good Monsoon showers, although for a short period of time.
The credit for these rains goes to the shifting of Monsoon Trough southwards (earlier it was persisting over the foothills of the Himalayas)
As the shift continues, on and off rainfall activities will continue over Delhi and NCR area, along with parts of South Haryana, South Punjab and the western parts of Uttar Pradesh. This activity will happen during the next three days.
However, the ongoing rains are not the typical Monsoon ones so as to continue throughout the day. Thus, these showers would mostly remain patchy for the next few days as well. The formation of the convective clouds (that last for an hour or two) will keep these on and off rains going in Delhi and NCR area until July 18.
Meanwhile, the sky will remain cloudy to partly cloudy and also overcast at some point of time. And the weather would also remain pleasant. The temperatures would remain below normal and settle in the mid-30s.
By July 19, the weather activities will once again start decreasing, however, chances of light rain in isolated pockets cannot be ruled out. Dry weather will once again take over entire Delhi and NCR area by July 20-21.
