Localised showers drench north Delhi, rest of national capital remains dry


While North Delhi saw a heavy spell of rain Tuesday in an event of localised rainfall, there was no shower in most parts of the national capital.

The weather stations at the Delhi Ridge and the adjoining Delhi University area recorded rainfall more than what the Safdarjung weather station, which provides a marker for the city, recorded this September so far. The weather station in the Delhi Ridge, which is a synoptic manual observatory, recorded 87 mm rainfall on Tuesday while the automatic weather station at Delhi University recorded 83.5 mm.

Much of this rainfall was recorded between 3.45 pm and 5.30 pm, according to the officials of the India Meteorological Department (IMD). The two observatories are just about 3 km apart, officials said. They added, the southern parts of the city mostly remained dry.

While eight weather stations in Delhi, including Safdarjung, recorded no rainfall at all between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm, two stations recorded only traces of rain, and Najafgarh recorded only light rainfall.

According to IMD officials, the localised heavy rainfall event was due to moisture-laden easterly or southeasterly winds that reached Delhi-NCR on account of a low-pressure area over northwest Bay of Bengal and the presence of a western disturbance. These weather systems also brought moderate to heavy rainfall to Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh, officials said.

Overcast skies and light to moderate rainfall remain on the forecast for Delhi Wednesday. Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon has begun withdrawing from Rajasthan. The IMD said in an update Tuesday that monsoon has withdrawn from parts of southwest Rajasthan and adjoining Kutch Tuesday.

As southwest monsoon leaves Northwest India, capital sees deficit in rainfall


The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said in an update on Monday that conditions are becoming favourable for the withdrawal of the southwest monsoon from parts of Northwest India, including Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana and Kutch during the next two days.

The update added that dry weather is very likely over west Rajasthan, Punjab and adjoining areas of Haryana over the next five days due to an anticyclonic flow over northwest India. Very light rainfall is expected in Delhi from September 20 to 24. The Safdarjung weather station recorded 5.8 mm of rainfall on Monday.

The monsoon season is considered to be from June 1 to September 30, according to an IMD official. From June 1 to September 18, the Safdarjung weather station, which serves as a marker for the city, has recorded 398.6 mm of rainfall, 35% short of the normal of 615.8 mm. Safdarjung has seen no heavy rain spells in August and September so far this season. In 2021, Safdarjung recorded a large excess in rainfall for the monsoon season, having registered 1,169.7 mm from June 1 to September 30.

Of the nine districts that the IMD considers for rainfall distribution in Delhi, only East Delhi has recorded rainfall in the ‘normal’ range, having recorded 736.6 mm of rainfall from June 1 to September 19. Northeast Delhi and West Delhi have both recorded large deficits in rainfall, having recorded only 248.5 mm and 215.4 mm respectively. All other districts – New Delhi, Central Delhi, North Delhi, Northwest Delhi, South Delhi and Southwest Delhi have recorded deficits in rainfall.

As a whole, the city has recorded a deficit of 38%, having logged 326.2 mm of rainfall against a normal of 525.2 mm till September 19. Delhi has seen deficits in rainfall in 2020, 2019 and 2017 as well. In 2020, Delhi recorded 476.7 mm of rainfall during the monsoon season, which is around 20% short of the normal, according to the IMD’s Rainfall Statistics of India reports. The city saw a lower amount of 380.1 mm during the monsoon in 2019, which is a deficit of around 35%.

In 2018, the rainfall of 647.4 mm fell within the normal range, while 2017 recorded a 30% deficit.

Rainfall deficit of 35% in Delhi as monsoon set to withdraw in two days


Monsoon is likely to withdraw from parts of northwest India over the next two days, leaving a rainfall deficit of 35 per cent in Delhi, according to India Meteorological Department (IMD) figures. From June 1 to September 18, the Safdarjung weather station, which provides representative figures for the city, has recorded 398.6 mm of rainfall against a normal of 615.8 mm.

The southwest monsoon hit Delhi on June 30 this year, close to the ‘normal’ onset date of June 27. This year, Delhi received its monsoonal rainfall in July, August and September. At Safdarjung, the month of June saw a deficit of around 67 per cent in rainfall. July recorded an excess of around 37 per cent, while August left behind a large deficit of around 82 per cent. In September so far, Safdarjung has recorded a rainfall deficit of 53 per cent.

Little rain is on the forecast in Delhi over the next two days – very light rainfall is a possibility on Monday, while no rain is likely on Tuesday, the IMD said.

In an update on Monday morning, the IMD said dry weather is likely over Delhi, Haryana, Chandigarh, west Rajasthan and Punjab during the next five days due to an anticyclonic flow over northwest India. Conditions are therefore becoming favourable for the withdrawal of the southwest monsoon from parts of northwest India during the next two days.

From June 1 to September 18, the city has recorded 326.2 mm of rainfall, which is 38 per cent short of the normal of 523.6 mm. Of the nine districts that the IMD considers for rainfall distribution in Delhi, only a single district, East Delhi, has recorded rainfall in the ‘normal’ range since June 1. Two districts – Northeast Delhi and West Delhi – have recorded a large deficit in rainfall. Central Delhi, New Delhi, North Delhi, Northwest Delhi, South Delhi and Southwest Delhi have recorded rainfall in the ‘deficit’ range from June 1 onwards.
