When will the monsoon reach Delhi?

The maximum temperature in Delhi on Wednesday was 44.7 degrees Celsius. The Meteorological Department has predicted the arrival of monsoon in the capital by the end of June. Delhi is experiencing severe heat these days. For the last 15 days, the maximum temperature is being recorded above 40 degrees Celsius. The IMD said that the monsoon is expected to arrive in the city by the end of this month, around June 27. The Meteorological Department has predicted strong winds and partly cloudy weather at most places on Thursday. The maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to be around 45 and 30 degrees Celsius respectively.

How far has the monsoon reached?

The Meteorological Department said that the monsoon can reach Odisha, coastal Andhra Pradesh and northwestern Bay of Bengal during the next three to four days. An official said, “The monsoon is weak in the Bay of Bengal and it is awaited to move forward from there.” Meteorologists say that hot winds coming from the northwest are dominating the weak monsoon over the Bay of Bengal and increasing hot weather conditions in parts of central and northern India.

When will the monsoon reach North India?

Former Earth Sciences Secretary Madhavan Rajeevan said the monsoon pattern is getting disrupted after its normal progress. “Not much progress is expected in the next 8-10 days, so its arrival in North India may be delayed. This is likely to lead to extreme temperatures and heatwaves in North India, including Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar,” he said. According to the weather department, the monsoon is expected to reach Bihar and Jharkhand by June 16-18, Uttar Pradesh by June 20-30 and Delhi around June 27, which is the normal arrival date for the national capital.
