The direction of wind has changed over the National Capital and its adjacent areas since yesterday evening. In addition warm and dry westerly winds have been substituted by moist easterly winds. The cloud cover has also increased. And due to all these factors, it can be said that the long-awaited Monsoon rains over Delhi as well as NCR area will come to an end soon. Delhiites have been waiting since a long time for the monsoon rains and finally this wait is going to over.

According to the Indian Meteorological Department's (IMD) forecast, Delhi could receive light rainfall from Monday (15th July 2019) night to Wednesday (17th July 2019). Adjoining areas like Gurugram, Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad are all set to experience a spell of Monsoon rains. The intensity of showers will be light today as well as tomorrow and rainfall will also be scattered in nature.

From 17th July onwards, the intensity will slowly increase and the people of Delhi and National Capital Region area will finally get to enjoy good Monsoon showers. Furthermore, in the wake of these activities the temperature that was close to 40-degree mark till now, will dip, thus making the weather nice and enjoyable.


Though these Monsoon rains will not be heavy in nature at first, the possibility of one or two intense spells of rain on 17 and 18 July 2019 cannot be ruled out.

Along with the National Capital, other areas of the northern plains that include South Haryana, South Punjab, Southwest Uttar Pradesh and North Rajasthan will also experience rainfall and thundershower activities. These showers will bring down the soaring temperatures in the North.

Delhi usually records more than 50% of rainfall in the month of June & July but, this year the city is witnessing a dry spell. Besides a dry spell, delay in the crucial southwest monsoon has also raised concerns as the water table in Delhi has been declining.

An IMD scientist Kuldeep Shrivastava said, "Around 20 & 22 July again, a dry spell is expected to hit Delhi. We're expecting a good rainfall in Delhi as well as Northwest India on 24 & 25 July, because the Southwest trough is moving towards Delhi-NCR & eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh”.
