June 27, 2022 2:27 PM |

Southwest Monsoon is likely to make entry soon over Delhi and NCR. Monsoon showers are likely around late night on 29th June and will last through the morning and forenoon hours on 30th June. Conditions will remain favourable for light rain on the following 3 days as well, till 03rd July.  More heavy showers will be likely during the 1st half of next week, between 04th and 06th July.

Earlier, Delhi had a normal date 29thJune of monsoon arrival. As per revised schedule, based on data 1961-2019, the fresh date for arrival is fixed as 27thJune, since 2020. Last year, the monsoon made entry only on 13thJuly after having a long pause over Uttar Pradesh.  This season, the delay expected is marginal and monsoon showers will break the jinx of dry spell for the national capital.  Delhi has remained nearly dry for the last one week. Base station Safdarjung has recorded rainfall of 23.7mm so far against the monthly normal of 82.2mm.

An east-west trough  is running in the close proximity of Delhi.  Easterly winds have raised the humidity level. Above normal day temperature of high 30’s will drop the comfort levels with sultry conditions. Combination of heat and humidity may lead to formation of tall clouds  during late afternoon/ evening, accompanied with flash of lightning or mild thunderstorm, today and tomorrow.

A cyclonic circulation is developing over Bihar and East Uttar Pradesh, tomorrow. This will move westward over central Uttar Pradesh, a day later on 29thJune. This situation will bring decent monsoon showers for entire state of Uttar Pradesh. Also, the persisting trough will be dragged further and activate to lash the national capital and suburbs with rain and thundershowers. The weather activity is expected to commence during late night on 29th and continue on 30thJune.

Much awaited monsoon is likely to arrive anytime soon on 30th June. Mercury will take a plunge again to mid 30’s and stay so for the rest of the week. Conditions will be favorable to have more showers, albeit patchy and fleeting, till 03rd July. Further, more monsoon showers will soak the city wet with good spread and speed, between 04th-06thJuly.
