Dry spell in North India this week; North East to experience heavy rains


The Weather Report: The upcoming week is expected to be another disappointing week in terms of monsoon performance in north India

The month of August which is the core month of the monsoon season is about to end in a few days. The distribution of rains in the month has been on regional levels.

Extreme rainfall events occurred in parts of Central and West India along with the Himalayas whereas the west coast, Indo-Gangetic plains and North East India barely recorded any significant rains throughout August.

Till 27 August, Delhi recorded a mere 39.8mm against the normal of 207.4mm, the monthly departure stands at -81 per cent from the normal, interestingly August is the Wettest month of the year in the capital which is underperforming by a huge margin.

Seasonal rains from June till now stand at 350.6mm against the normal of 491.5mm and the departure from normal is -29 per cent, a poor monsoon for the national capital region despite good July rain when Safdarjung Observatory saw 286.3mm rainfall against the normal of 209.7mm.

Main reasons behind significant low rains in Delhi-NCR and North India August

1. The Monsoon axis remained south of its normal position for nearly 90 per cent days in the month.

2. None of the low pressure area or depression from the Bay of Bengal travelled to North India, all of them have impacted Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan.

3. North India usually observes heavy rains when upper level Western Disturbance interacts with the monsoon trough or easterlies on the lower level. No Western Disturbance has approached North India since July.

Meanwhile, the rainfall performance over the parts of Central and West India was very high over the past week.
Parts of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan were flooded earlier in the week as the monsoonal depression crossed the region causing very heavy to extremely heavy rains resulting in overflowing of major rivers and almost every water body were flowing above the danger mark.
