Delhi rains have till now remained hidden and the month of June has remained dry so far. Due to persistent dry weather, Delhiites are continuously battling against dry, hot and humid weather conditions. However, the mercury levels in Delhi have dropped by 4 degrees from Tuesday with the temperature at 43ºC to 38.5ºC on Wednesday.
However, the city usually records a fair amount of rainfall during the month of June and the maximum temperatures generally settle at 38 degree Celsius. Though the city has been doing justice with the temperatures, it the is rains that have turned their face on the opposite side.
The average monthly rains of Delhi stand at 82 mm and till date, the city has not recorded even a single drop of rain. Though some pre-Monson activities in the form of dust storm and thunderstorms were reported recently, it did not trigger rains to show up over the capital of the country and its surrounding regions.
As per Skymet Weather, a trough is likely to form from Punjab to West Uttar Pradesh across Delhi by tomorrow. In the wake of this, we expect, dust storm and thundershowers to commence once again over Delhi and its surrounding Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad, and Faridabad around June 9.
Short spells of these pre-Monsoon activities may continue for next 2-3 days until around June 11 or 12. However, the occurrence of these activities is expected during early morning or late afternoon hours and would be for short duration with lesser intensity.
As the activity would be during the late afternoon hours, its effect on the rising temperatures would be less as, by that time, the temperatures would have already soared.
The normal date for the onset of Monsoon over Delhi is June 28 but as Monsoon arrived over Indian mainland before the time this year, Delhi and its adjacent regions may also enjoy the arrival of early Monsoon.
