Rain in Delhi and NCR

Pre-Monsoon rains have finally made through Delhi-NCR, paving way for pleasant weather conditions. As Sunday, Monday too started on a pleasant note, with cloudy sky and moderate winds. Isolated rains have already been witnessed over parts of Delhi- NCR, particularly over the west and south-west Delhi comprising of Gurugram and Faridabad.

As a result, rise in day temperatures was arrested, which around 12 pm were hovering around 30°C. In fact, the spell is not over yet, as weathermen are predicting more rain and thundershower activities over more parts of Delhi. With this, we expect the maximum temperature to hover around 35°C only.

The dry spell in Delhi and NCR finally came to an end after almost twenty days. During the last 48 hours, isolated rains have been witnessed over Delhi and adjoining areas of Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad. These rains have helped in dropping the mercury, bringing in massive relief from heat wave conditions.

On June 16, Delhi recorded a maximum of 36.3°C, which was three degrees below the normal average. It was a significant drop of seven degrees as on June 15, the maximum temperature was 43°C.

According to Skymet Weather, a Cyclonic Circulation is persisting over Haryana and adjoining areas. Also, the humid winds from the Arabian Sea are increasing moisture over the northern plains including Delhi. This moisture incursion from the Arabian Sea is expected to continue for the next two to three days. Thus, we expect scattered rain and thundershower activities to continue on an intermittent basis over Delhi and NCR until June 19.

These rains would be light and patchy in nature, but the intense showers cannot be ruled out. Temperatures are expected to remain either normal or below normal.

This season, Delhi-NCR has seen some intense spell of severe heat wave for a prolonged period. In fact, on June 10, Delhi temperatures made history with the mercury soaring to 48 degrees, which has been highest in the history. Thereafter also, heat wave maintained its grip over Delhi, with some relief coming only over the weekend gone by.

Now, with these rains, chances of heat wave to make a comeback seems very bleak now.
