Weak monsoon expected in Delhi

June 5, 2013 2:21 PM |

There seems to be no relief in sight for Delhiites reeling under extreme hot conditions as temperatures in the national capital have consistently remained above or close to 40 degree Celsius since the month of May. And if that wasn’t agonizing enough, weather analysts have predicted a weak monsoon for Delhi. They have also gone to the extent of predicting below average rainfall.

However, there may be some rain in Delhi and NCR in the month of June that would pull down temperatures to comfortable levels but they would only be pre-monsoon showers and not monsoon rains.

Weather models at Skymet Weather predict that Delhi in June will witness more rainfall than normal even as days are getting hotter than usual, “As of now we are expecting about 80mm of rain in the capital this month and frequent dust storms either due to a passing western disturbance and or because of the pre monsoon activity”, Mahesh Palawat, Head of the forecasting team at Skymet said.

Thundershowers are possible from 10th June onwards and would continue till 23rd or 24th of June. This slight change in weather may make your evenings and nights cooler forcing you to assume that monsoon has arrived which possibly may not be the case.

Monsoon is expected to hit Delhi by 8th of July but scanty rainfall is expected throughout the month. In other words July will be very uneasy, hot and humid. The same scenario will continue throughout the month of August and September raising a scare of deficit rain in the national capital.
