New Delhi [संजीव गुप्ता], Two days ago, where the September rainfall in Delhi was running 46 percent less, now it has increased by 16 percent due to incessant rains. Palam and Lodhi Road have also received 32 and 16 percent more rainfall respectively. There is only one week left of September, in which two or three more rains are expected. That is, not only the rain of the month can set a new record, but it can also fulfill the shortfall in the rains of the entire monsoon season.
Like Thursday, it rained throughout the day on Friday. Sometimes light and sometimes fast. The sun was not visible even for the second consecutive day. Due to incessant rainfall, a drop in temperature has also been recorded. The maximum temperature on Friday was 27.6, which is seven degrees below normal. The minimum temperature was 22.4 degrees Celsius, one degree below normal. The humidity level in the air ranged from 95 to 100 percent.
According to the Meteorological Department, the main reason for this rain in Delhi-NCR is the combination of two weather systems. On one hand, where a Western Disturbance is active in the northern part, on the other hand it is raining due to low air pressure in Madhya Pradesh. According to the Meteorological Department, maximum rain has occurred in Palam and Ayanagar.
Two days have passed. There are three days left. A yellow alert has also been issued for Saturday. There will be moderate rainfall and there may be heavy rain at some places. The maximum temperature is expected to be 27 degrees while the minimum is expected to be 22 degrees.
The Meteorological Department has appealed to the people to travel only keeping this situation in mind. After this, light to moderate rain is forecast for Sunday and Monday as well. Green alert has been issued for both these days.
