June 21, 2019 3:45 PM |

Weather in Delhi

In the wake of dry weather conditions, temperatures rose marginally in some parts of the National Capital Region during the last 24 hours. Maximum temperatures which were in the comfortable range of low 30’s have increased and maximum in some parts of Delhi and NCR are settling in high 40’s.

At present, Safdarjung Observatory is witnessing hot weather with a maximum temperature of 38 degrees Celsius. Now in the absence of any significant weather system, we expect dry weather conditions to persist in Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad during the next 48 hours. However, due to prevalent easterlies for a short duration, humidity levels have gone up. Therefore, isolated rain and thundershowers might occur over Delhi and NCR, today on June 21. However, the weather will once again turn dry.  In fact, temperatures may rise above forty degrees in some pockets of Delhi and NCR.

Weather Alert For Delhi and NCR

Short spell dust storm and thunderstorm with light rain and gusty wind will occur at few parts over Faridabad, Gurugram, Jhajjar, Rohtak, Sonipat, New Delhi, Baghpat, Gautam Buddha Nagar and Ghaziabad during next 2-3 hours.

Further, a fresh Western Disturbance is expected to start affecting Jammu and Kashmir by June 23. And during that time, we expect isolated thundery activity with dust storm followed by light rain in Delhi and NCR between June 24 and 25. These rains may help in reducing the temperatures by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius.

Talking about the arrival of Monsoon in Delhi and NCR, as per Skymet Weather, the normal onset date of Monsoon over the National Capital Region is June 29. However, this year Monsoon may take at least a week longer to reach the city.
