India Meteorological Department (IMD) reports that the national capital saw significant rainfall on October 8 and October 9.
At SFD, Lodhi Road, and Ayaynagar, the reported rainfall totals in Delhi are 74.3mm, 87.2mm, and 85.2mm, respectively. Also reporting 60 and 64mm, respectively, were Delhi Ridge and Palam. According to the weather forecasting organisation, the amount of rain that fell today was not a record-breaker for the month of October in terms of daily rainfall during a 24-hour period.
The SFD was last active on October 18, and during that day’s 24-hour period, 87.9 mm of rain fell.
The lowest value of the same parameter for the time period, according to the weather forecasting bureau, was observed on October 19, 1998, at 3.1 degrees Celsius.
All 12 stations in the national capital experienced moderate rainfall today, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), which stated on Saturday that the amount is likely to decrease starting tomorrow but that the sky will stay gloomy.
However, Delhi has not received a warning or alert from the weather forecasting service.
The IMD predicted that starting on October 10 the national capital would not experience any considerable rainfall, but that drizzle or light rain would occur.
IMD scientist RK Jenamani said, “According to the most recent analysis, rainfall activity is happening over north India as a result of interaction between a western disturbance that is in the middle and upper troposphere and a cyclonic circulation over the Gujarat region. From there, moisture is being transported by the wind to Uttar Pradesh, the Delhi-NCR region, East Rajasthan, and West Madhya Pradesh. If we look at the rainfall activity up until 8:50 a.m., we can see that the Konkan region, Gujarat, and the UP and MP saw the most of the heavy to extremely heavy rainfall.”
