Delhi Rain

Delhi rains have been playing hide and seek for the past many days. Isolated pockets of Delhi have been receiving short spells of rains. Continuous widespread rains have not made an appearance over the national capital.

Reason for this can be the oscillation of the axis of Monsoon trough from south to north and north to south. The movement of this trough has been rapid due to which Delhi has not been seeing continuous rainfall activity.

Today also, patchy rainfall activity has been observed over parts of the national capital. However, not the entire city has seen good rains.

Moreover, there is no weather system affecting North India including Delhi and the NCR region. Therefore, patchy rains are likely to continue for the next two days. However, weather will still remain warm and humid.

August 19 onward, rainfall intensity in Delhi and adjoining areas is likely to increase as the axis of Monsoon trough is likely to remain in the vicinity of Delhi. In fact, the low pressure which will develop over North Bay of Bengal will move ina northwest direction wherein the trough will merge with this weather system.

During that period, some relief is expected from the sultry weather conditions. Until then, Delhi is expected to continue seeing warm and humid weather conditions.
