In fact, during the pre-Monsoon season from March 1 to may 31 the national capital Delhi observed a rainfall deficiency of 38%.

The month of June which usually is good for Delhi in terms of rain as Monsoon makes onset during the last week of the month has also observed poor rains. The deficiency in Delhi in the month of June so far is a whopping 85%. And with Monsoon being delayed, an no rain in sight June is staring at an even larger deficiency.

The normal onset date of Monsoon in Delhi is June 29 but with its delayed onset over Kerala and its sluggish movement, Monsoon is likely to arrive in Delhi a week late.
