As the heatwaves become a new normal, monsoons are a much-awaited occasion for Delhiites to seek a respite from the heat. After a short break from Delhi’s scorching heat and recording the coolest June day in the last decade at 17.6 degrees, the mercury has started to rise again. The average temperatures in Delhi are ranging between 36-41 degrees with hot afternoons and warm evenings. On 23 June 2022, the maximum temperature recorded in Delhi was 40 degrees Celsius.
According to weather forecast websites such as Skymet, there is less chance of rainfall this week. The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted the rise in mercury to continue for the next two days. The expected rise in temperature will stick to 40 degrees in the coming days. But these hot conditions are going to give way to some cool rainy days. IMD has predicted that the national capital is likely to receive pre-monsoon drizzles and rainfall from 27 June 2022 which will continue for the coming 3-4 days. According to IMD the South-West monsoon is expected to hit the Capital City in the first week of July.
