Fresh Spells of Rain in Delhi-NCR to Bring Respite From the Ongoing Heatwave in May

On May 24, the IMD weather forecast predicted a “generally cloudy sky” with light rain and thunderstorms.

India’s weather department, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), recently described how the country’s capital, New Delhi, would soon experience a much-needed respite from a scorching heat wave that has gripped North India this May. With the rainfall, the heatwave is expected to subside, and the temperature will fall a little in the coming days. All thanks to the change in western disturbances, IMD said.

“The Western Disturbance is hitting Northwest India. Its effect has started to be seen in Jammu-Kashmir,” IMD Delhi regional head Kuldeep Srivastava mentioned, as he referred to the weather phenomenon that typically results in lowered temperatures. “On May 24 and 25, it will have its effect in northwest India, Delhi-NCR, and north Rajasthan. It will be cloudy, and some light rain may also occur,” he added.
