Over the past three months, two out of the nine districts that the India Meteorological Department (IMD) considers for rainfall data in Delhi have recorded a ‘large deficit’ in rainfall, while five districts have recorded a ‘deficit’. Northeast Delhi and West Delhi have both recorded a large deficit of 60 per cent in rainfall from June 1 to September 2, the IMD data shows. Rainfall that is 60 per cent to 99 per cent below the normal is considered a “large deficit”.

Little rain is likely over the next six days as well. The possibility of very light rainfall is on the forecast from September 5 to 7, and no rainfall is likely on September 3, 4, 8 and 9.
