Delhi weather today: Thunderstorm likely, maximum temperature around 35°C


While parts of Delhi-NCR woke up to another spell of rain Tuesday morning, an India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast issued a little after 9 am said that thunderstorm with light to moderate intensity rainfall is likely over Delhi and NCR, including Ghaziabad, Noida, Gurgaon and Faridabad, over the next two hours.

The IMD forecast indicates that Delhi is likely to receive ‘moderate’ rainfall Tuesday. The maximum temperature is likely to settle at around 35 degrees Celsius, a little below the 36.9 degrees recorded on Monday. The minimum temperature recorded early on Tuesday was 26.2 degrees Celsius, a degree below the normal.

The Safdarjung weather observatory, which provides representative figures for the city, recorded around 2 mm of rainfall between 8.30 am on Monday and 8.30 am on Tuesday. The Ridge in North Delhi recorded a higher amount of 38.2 mm in the same time frame, while Lodhi Road recorded 2.4 mm.

The temperature at 8.30 am on Tuesday was 28 degrees Celsius and the relative humidity at the same time was 93 per cent.

The rainfall that Delhi has been witnessing on Monday and Tuesday came after the city recorded little rainfall in the past 10 days, keeping humidity levels high. While the IMD forecast had earlier indicated that ‘moderate’ rainfall was likely on Saturday, July 9, the city recorded no rain on the day.

Light to moderate rainfall is likely on Wednesday as well while light rainfall is a possibility on Thursday and Friday. Rainfall is not on the forecast for July 16 to 18, though cloudy skies and likely to persist.

With the monsoon trough being active and south of its normal position, light to moderate rainfall activity is also likely over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Rajasthan on July 12, 13 and 14.

Farm fires down, Delhi air still ‘very poor’


Delhi’s air quality remained in the ‘very poor’ category on Saturday, when the contribution of stubble burning to PM 2.5 levels in Delhi was “negligible,” according to the SAFAR forecasting system.

The AQI, as a 24-hour average, was 374, according to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) bulletin. This is only marginally better than the 380 recorded on Friday. Local wind speed remains low resulting in poor dispersion of pollutants.

From Sunday to Tuesday, strong local winds are likely to help with the dispersion of pollutants, the SAFAR forecast indicates. Winds coming from the north or northwest during this period are also likely to help with flushing out local pollutants.

The farm fire count Saturday, according to the SAFAR system, was 752. The fire count peaked at a figure of around 5,450 on November 8. After a count of 5,317 on November 10, the count fell to 3,125 on November 15; 2,643 on November 17; and to 773 on November 18.

The contribution of stubble burning to PM 2.5 levels has also been declining. It stood at 48% on November 7, fell to about 27% on November 9, and climbed up again to about 35% on November 12. The share fell to around 12% on November 14, 10% on November 15, and 2% on November 18. On Saturday, the figure stood at 5%.

Meanwhile, the spraying of the PUSA decomposer, which was meant to prevent stubble burning within Delhi and help decompose crop residue, has not been completed yet. Of around 4,300 acres, for which applications were received, around 3,800 acres have been covered so far, said A P Saini, Joint Director, Agriculture. The remaining area is likely to be covered over the next two days, he said.

An agriculture (extension) officer in North Delhi said that around 30 to 40 acres that were remaining would be covered in the next two days. Fields in some parts of North Delhi, like Nangal Thakran, are still waterlogged after the rains, he said.

“Farmers in this area usually sow wheat by around November 15. This has been delayed this year due to rainfall. They are considering not sowing wheat this year and growing something else, like sunflower,” he said.
