Rain in Delhi brings temperatures back to normal

Delhi Weather 1

Summer heat took a back seat in Delhi as the recent rainfall over the National Capital and its adjoining areas has cooled the weather very considerably. Temperatures that were hovering 5-6 degrees over the normal mark have dropped down to normalcy.

Since the last 2 days, Delhi witnessed good pre-Monsoon rainfall in the month of April. This rainfall is unusual over Delhi and NCR for the month of April. This has certainly brought the much needed sigh of relief over Delhi and NCR. Prior to this rainfall, temperatures in Delhi were touching 40 degrees Celsius. From 08:30 am on April 5 to 08:30 am on April 6, the maximum temperature recorded in Delhi was 34.5°C, which is normal for the city.

This spell of rainfall over Delhi and NCR is due to the Western Disturbance over Jammu and Kashmir and its Cyclonic Circulation over Central Pakistan and adjoining Punjab. A trough from this circulation was seen running up to West Uttar Pradesh over Delhi and NCR.

On April 4 & 5, Delhi received 25 mm rainfall on both the days. Now, according to Skymet Weather Chief Meteorologist Mahesh Palawat, “Weather in Delhi will remain pleasant during morning and evening hours till April 10, but day temperatures will make weather warm. Maximum temperatures will remain near normal which is around 34-35 degrees Celsius."

Due to change in wind pattern from southwesterly to northerly, temperatures over Delhi will remain near normal. Winds will come from north, from Jammu and Kashmir, where good snowfall has occurred. These winds along with rainfall over the city will keep the temperatures near normal till April 10; thereafter the temperatures will see a gradual increase leading to discomfort in weather.

It is expected that by mid-April, wind pattern will once again change and hot southwesterly winds will commence over Delhi leading to heatwave conditions. But, for next week, temperatures in Delhi will remain near normal and pleasant weather will prevail.
