Rains in september: Reason behind unseasonal rainfall in Delhi

Heavy rains, and waterlogged roads, all are unseasonal sights in September. As per weather experts, this is happening due to a rare phenomenon.

Delhi is witnessing heavy rainfall in the month of September, the reason is an interaction of two weather systems.

It is the western disturbance and a low-pressure system, 250km southwest of Delhi that are jointly causing unseasonal rains.

Moreover, these two weather systems may have also delayed the withdrawal of monsoons in Delhi.

It is raining heavily in Delhi and nearby states. The constant pitter-patter of rains in the month of September is quite unusual; we all are witnessing the mild effects of climate change.

Notably, an overcast sky and unseasonal rains with thundershowers are likely to persist in Delhi on Friday.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) Friday issued a ‘yellow’ alert for the day.

A yellow alert means a warning to ‘be prepared’ for rains. The waterlogged roads are causing massive traffic snarls, increased chances of accidents and other problems in low-lying areas.

Furthermore, the maximum temperature for Friday is likely to settle at around 28 degrees Celsius. It is below the normal of 34 degrees Celsius for this time of the year.

Also, light to moderate rains and thundershowers are likely to continue on Saturday.

Not only Delhi but this rare phenomenon is causing flood-like situations in neighbouring areas also.

A cyclonic circulation lies over northwest Madhya Pradesh and the neighbourhood.
