Monsoon rains of varying intensity are continuing in Delhi and its adjoining areas since the last two to three days. At present, the axis of Monsoon Trough is running from South of Delhi and easterly winds are also blowing leading to an increase in the humidity levels.
These conditions have already given scattered light to moderate rains with one or two intense spells over the region, in the last 48 hours. Heavy rains to the tune of 50 mm have been recorded in Safdarjung during the last 24 hours, while the observatory at Palam recorded 9 mm of rains, during the same span.
According to our meteorologists, the local weather conditions, along with high humidity and increased temperatures result in the development of thunder clouds. These conditions then result in patchy rains and also sometimes give short intense spells of rain.
Now, we expect on and off rains to continue in isolated pockets of Delhi and NCR are until tomorrow. Thereafter, the axis of Monsoon Trough will shift northwards and start giving fairly widespread rain and thundershower activities July 24 onward.
On July 25 or 26, there are chances of heavy to very heavy spells of rain, which may result in water-logging and traffic jams at many places in Delhi and NCR area. This would be one of the heaviest spells of the Monsoon season so far.
In the wake of these activities, the temperatures will subside and the weather will become pleasant. Moreover, rainfall statistics would improve.
