This year, Delhi and adjoining regions of Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, and Gurugram did not receive fairly widespread hefty showers barring a couple of occasions. Thus, as on July 16, Delhi is rain deficient by 27 percent.
However, parts of Delhi have been witnessing patchy Monsoon rains for the last few days. In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday, Narela observatory of Delhi recorded 64 mm of rains, Ridge 38.8 mm, Safdarjung 32 mm of rains.
As per weathermen, the reason for these scanty showers can be attributed to the absence of any significant weather system in the vicinity of Delhi. However, since the axis of Monsoon trough is running South of Delhi since many days, some rainfall activity has been witnessed. Also, on and off showers will continue over the city.
Now weathermen indicate that the western end of the axis of Monsoon trough is likely to shift northwards. In wake of this, rainfall activity is expected to increase over Delhi and adjoining regions of Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, and Gurugram in the next 48 hours. These, few good spells of rain are possible between July 19 and July 23. Until then, the weather would be warm and humid with chances of isolated patchy showers.
In wake of these rains, the rain deficiency is expected to improve. In fact, the maximum temperatures ranging in the mid-30s will reduce by a few notches leading to comfortable weather conditions during that time.
