Delhi-NCR may expect some rains by August 28th
People waiting for rains in National Capital Region (NCR) in the month of August may not get to see it. And there are high chances of no relief from the scorching heat in this month which is supposed to be full of rains, thus cooler.

The record breaking high temperature has made NCR a boiling pot. Maximum temperature of 38.4 degree Celsius had been recorded in Delhi on 20 August, which is almost close to the ten-year high of 40.1 degree Celcius recorded in 2009 during August.

The last fifteen days have been the longest dry spell Delhi and NCR regions have ever witnessed in August. People are getting baked in the unseasonable heat in the monsoon month of August.

Giving some hope of relief from scorching heat, Mahesh Palawat, Chief Meteorologist at Skymet Weather Services, said that Delhiites and NCR people can expect light spell by August 28th or 29th .

"This is the longest dry spell in last one decade, this is also the effect of El-nino. I think by 28th or 29 cyclonic circulation will take place over Delhi and Haryana, with light precipitation and light rain," said Mahesh Palawat.

However Palawat added that the light spell of rains will bring discomfort along with it, with the increase in humidity.

Palawat added, "Now the winds are westernly and these are dry winds, so the moisture is also less. So, despite high temperature the discomfort level is less, as the humidity is less. And this is due to clear sky. But in the coming days, when the wind will change its direction then humidity will increase and there are chances of light rains and then there will be some relief from high temperature, but again discomfort level will increase due to increase in moisture level," said Palawat.
