Rainfall is expected to return to the Northen plains, including the national capital, following a dry spell of a week after heavy rains had brought Gurugram to a standstill. The Northern hills have been showered with rains for over a week now. New Delhi, which is currently facing a dry and humid period is expected to have a cloudy weather with moderate showers over the period of a week.
This is due to a creation of a low-pressure area over South Pakistan and the Southwest Rajasthan region. An upper air cyclonic circulation has also been seen lying at mid-tropospheric levels.
Mumbai is expected to have an average temperature of 29°C and remain humid throughout the week. The city is to face moderate to heavy rainfall with mild winds blowing in the days to come. The state of Maharashtra has already received heavy showers during the last week and the intensity of rains have been higher in the states than it’s western counterparts. Earlier on August 5, Mumbai was brought to a standstill after continuous showers blocked the roads and people remained stuck in the traffic for hours.
These rains can be attributed to the low pressure over Northeast Madhya Pradesh and adjoining areas. Due to the off shore trough running along the West Coast, moisture incursion has increased over these areas. The axis of Monsoon is also running in close proximity to the region.
