With the monsoon trough advancing towards north-west India, parts of Delhi – largely south, south-west and west Delhi -- received short but intense spells of rain on Tuesday afternoon, providing some relief to residents from sweltering heat and the humidity levels in the first half of the day.

Safdarjung, Delhi’s base weather station, recording a maximum temperature of 37.7 degrees Celsius (°C), which was 0.5 degrees lower than the maximum on Monday, but still three notches above normal for this time of the year. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the monsoon trough should move closer to Delhi over the next 24 hours, bringing light to moderate rain to the city on Wednesday.

While Safdarjung recorded 8.7mm of rainfall between 8.30am and 5.30pm on Tuesday, Pusa, Ayanagar and Palam recorded 12mm, 12.2mm and 10.2mm of ran, respectively, during the same period. Delhi has so far received 163.6mm of rainfall till 5.30pm Tuesday, against a normal monthly average of 210.6mm, IMD officials said.

“The rain we received on Tuesday was mainly due to the incoming moisture, and these spells were scattered and limited to some parts of Delhi. The monsoon trough is still around 150km south of Delhi, but will advance closer to the capital in the next 24 to 48 hours and bring light to moderate rain on Wednesday and Thursday,” said RK Jenamani, scientist at IMD.
