New Delhi: The national capital may have to wait longer for heavy monsoon showers as the weather department has predicted only very light precipitation during the next two to three days.

On Wednesday, very light rain or thundershowers are expected in Delhi towards the afternoon, an India Meteorological Department (IMD) official said.

Since the onset of monsoon on 5 July, the Safdarjung Observatory, which provides official figures for the city, has recorded 25.4 mm of rainfall.

The observatory received 0.4 mm of rains in the last 24 hours, ending at 8:30 am.

Overall, the weather station has gauged 26.8 mm of rains from 1 July to 9 July only 1.4 mm of precipitation occurred in first five days of the month, meaning Delhi received 46 % less rainfall during the period.

Normally, it records 49.9 mm of rainfall in the first 9 days of July, according to officials.

One of the primary reasons behind scant rainfall is the delayed onset of monsoon in the region, they said.

The IMD on 5 July had declared the onset of monsoon over the national capital. Normally, the wind system reaches the city by 29 June.

A senior scientist at the IMD said though cloudy conditions will prevail in Delhi, no much rainfall is expected in the next two to three days.

At 8:30 am on Wednesday, the city recorded a low of 28.2 degrees Celsius, a notch more than normal, and humidity levels at 80 %P. The maximum temperature is likely to settle at 36 degrees Celsius.

Earlier, Delhi and its adjoining region are likely to receive moderate rain today, predicted India Meteorological Department (IMD).

The minimum and maximum temperatures of the national capital will hover around 26°C and 34°C with generally cloudy sky.

Apart from Delhi, thunderstorm accompanied with lightning and gusty winds (30-40 km/h) at isolated places very likely over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, East Rajasthan and West Madhya Pradesh, stated the weather forecasting agency in its All India Weather Warning Bulletin.
