Patchy rain likely in Delhi on Independence DayThe national capital has been observing patchy rains since the last few days. The pattern has been such that rains usually occur in the morning with breaks in the afternoon, and then again pick up in the evening. This pattern is on account of the Monsoon trough line, which is running close to Delhi-NCR causing such variations in the weather.

Tomorrow, similar conditions are expected in New Delhi on the occasion of Independence Day. However, rain may occur at a few places in the city only. The national capital is likely to experience partly cloudy sky conditions accompanied with light breeze and a humid day. But, no delay or hindrance is expected in the celebrations.

Days before the 69th Independence Day, security has been tight in the entire city which has also led to traffic woes due to barricading in almost every corner of Delhi. Narendra Modi will address the nation and unfurl the Indian flag for the second time as Prime Minister.

The Independence Day celebrations are expected to begin as early as around 6:30 am tomorrow even before sunrise (07:02 am). For visitors, pleasant conditions will prevail early in the morning however after the sunrise, humidity may further increase.

This year Modi’s Independence Day speech may be like his last one as he is likely to announce several schemes including many rural schemes as well as a universal health insurance plan. Also, according to media reports, the One Rank One Pension scheme, which allows pension parity among ex-servicemen may also be announced tomorrow itself.

Also, tomorrow from 5 am till 9 am, roads including the SP Mukherjee Marg, Netaji Subhash Marg, Link Road, Nisad Raj Marg and the Chandni Chowk Road (from Fountain Chowk to Red Fort) will not be open for general traffic due to security reasons.
