Now, what could bring a sigh of relief to the capital is the weather department’s prediction that south-west monsoon is set to hit the city by next week.  Meanwhile, the depression in Bay of Bengal has made the climate favorable for rains in Delhi.

The minimum temperature was recorded at 27 degrees Celsius, the season’s average.

After drenching the capital, the monsoon will travel to other states like Rajasthan, Haryana, Chandigarh, Madhya Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Delhi.

According to information shared by the Meteorological Department, the monsoon will cross the Bay of Bengal, crossing Dwarka, Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Sultanpur, Lakhimpur, Kri and Mukteshwar, across the whole northern India.
