Delhi, in the past four months, has recorded above normal rainfall and the cumulative precipitation so far this year has already already equalled the yearly quota of 774 mm. However, in August this year, the rainfall recorded has largely been in deficit with the total of this month's rainfall being 85 per cent less than normal.

The Capital on Monday was unusually hot, as it recorded the highest day-time temperature for August in the last four years. On Monday, mercury at Safdarjung — the base weather station— touched 38.1 degrees Celsius (°C), which was four degrees above normal for this time of the year. It was also more than Sunday’s 36.8°C.

IMD official said on Tuesday, “The maximum will be around 36°C on Tuesday and dip down to 33°C on Wednesday. On Tuesday, we expected some rain in the early hours of the day and this activity is mainly due to the monsoon trough moving northwards. It is likely to pass through Delhi during this period.”
