Weather News: Monsoon is changing trend… Humidity and heat in Delhi, chances of rain in Mumbai

New Delhi: Monsoon is going sloppy this time. The effect of monsoon is being seen in many areas. At the same time, people are still waiting for heavy rains in many areas of the country. Kharif crops are suffering a lot due to rain. After the rain-like situation in Delhi last week, the sky is expected to be less cloudy throughout this week. As a result, people will have to bear the scorching heat. The temperature staying between 35 to 36 degrees will make people sweat. At the same time, the Indian Meteorological Department has expressed the possibility of rain in Maharashtra.

According to the forecast of the Meteorological Department, moderate to heavy rains have been predicted in many parts of the state. During this time the wind will also blow at a speed of 40 to 50 kilometers per hour. Thane, Mumbai, Palghar, Raigad, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg areas have been predicted to see the most. On the other hand, the effect of heat and humidity is expected to increase in Delhi on Tuesday. Even the wind blowing at a speed of 8 km per hour in the areas of Delhi and NCAR will not be able to reduce the effect of sunlight and 94 percent humidity. Due to this people will have to face a situation like humidity. The maximum temperature in Delhi is expected to be 36 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature is 29 degrees Celsius on Tuesday.

Humidity expected in Noida and Ghaziabad too
Humidity-like conditions are likely to arise once again in Noida and Ghaziabad. The chance of rain has come down to just 14 per cent. Clouds will be visible in the sky, but after the sun rises, the maximum temperature can cross 36 degrees during the day. It will give a feeling of heat like temperature above 40 degrees. Humidity of 94 percent is playing the biggest role in this. In the areas of Delhi and NCR, there is a possibility of rain-like situation only after August 15. The minimum temperature in both the cities may remain around 29 degrees.

Monsoon showing different style
The rainfall in August is showing a different pattern as compared to July. Where the capital received more rain last month, less rain is being recorded in August in those areas. According to scientists, a similar pattern is visible in the first ten days of August. According to experts, the monsoon pattern is changing every time in the capital and the reason for this is the urban heat islands being built in the city along with climate change.

less rain in safdarjung
Talking about July, Safdarjung in the capital received 286.3 mm of rain, which was 37 percent more than normal. On the other hand, Lodi Road received 274.6 mm of rain, which was also 31 percent more than normal. At the same time, in the first eight days of August, rain has been below normal in both these places. Safdarjung has received only 20.1 mm of rain so far this month, which is 67 percent less than normal.

Lodhi Road also received only 13.7 mm of rain, which is 46 per cent less than the normal. If we talk about Palam, then in July there was 207.1 mm of rain. This is just two percent more than the normal. That is, the monsoon here was almost normal, but in August, it received 57.9 mm of rain in 8 days. This is 42 percent more than the normal.

Urban heat increased the problem
Mahesh Palawat of Skymet says that this variation in rainfall in different areas is happening due to climate change and the urban heat island. Now clouds do not rain in the capital even during monsoon. They dry up because of these urban heat islands before it rains. At the same time, it has also become a challenge to prepare the entire capital for this diverse rain. Now it is difficult to tell which parts of the capital are most vulnerable to rain or heat. That’s why sometimes it rains in Pitampura, sometimes in Palam, sometimes in Safdarjung, and sometimes there is waterlogging in Mayur Vihar.

What is Urban Heat Island
When a city has a higher temperature than its surroundings, it is called an urban heat island. The main reason for this is human activities. For this, the increasing use of buildings, concrete, less greenery, less water bodies, heat from AC, traffic, increased use of glass and steel, etc. are responsible.
