The monsoon has officially begun in Delhi, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD). The monsoon reached Mumbai and Delhi at the same time for the first time in more than sixty years, which is unusual.

Mumbai saw the southwest monsoon 14 days after Delhi did, but two days sooner. Due to the unprecedented activation of the western arm of the monsoon, the simultaneous onset is the result. Delhi only received 48 mm of rain, compared to Mumbai’s 176 mm.

The meteorological service has expected heavy rain with thunderstorms and lightning and has issued a yellow notice for numerous states. In Gujarat and Madhya Maharashtra, significant rainfall is expected as the monsoon develops. In the coming five days, maximum temperatures over northwest India are predicted to drop by 4-6°C.

According to Dr. Sushma Nair, a scientist from the IMD in the Mumbai region, “This great rainfall period was triggered by a cyclonic circulation that occurred in the Northeast Arabian Sea at medium levels.

Although the circulation now appears to be extending, moisture can still be brought in by it. Various types of precipitation may occur in Mumbai between June 26 and June 29. Within the next four days, there will be strong to heavy rain throughout the city.

Referring to the IMD, 2023 will have the second-most delayed monsoon in history. The monsoon was delayed to this level for the first time in 2019, according to IMD statistics. Mumbai had its first monsoon of 2019 on June 25. Now, 2023 is also recognized as the year with the most prolonged monsoon delay.

The heaviest downpour leg was recorded in Mumbai between 5.30 pm and 7.30 pm on June 24, according to IMD. 88 mm of rain fell on the city between 5:30 and 8:30. It’s Mumbai’s longest delayed monsoon start ever, Palawat continued.

Mumbai had the first significant rainfall of the year. Colaba and Santacruz both received 86 mm of rain, respectively, ahead is a week of rain.

According to the IMD website, Saturday saw more than 120 mm of rainfall in places like Dahisar, Borivali (E), Goregaon, Bandra, Matunga, GTB, Chandivali, Dadar, and portions of Navi Mumbai.

Meanwhile, 48.3 mm of rain was recorded at Delhi’s main weather station, Safdarjung Observatory, in the 24 hours ending at 8.30 am on Sunday.

According to the IMD, the Dhansa weather station recorded around 80 mm, Jafarpur, and Lodi Road recorded about 60 mm each, Ayanagar and Mungeshpur recorded about 50 mm each, while SPS Mayur Vihar recorded about 40 mm.

On Sunday, water-logging caused traffic in several areas of the city to snarl, which was made worst by uprooted trees and broken-down buses.

Among other places, traffic was impacted in IP Extension, Punjabi Bagh, and Adhchini. The MCD asserted that it has completely operationalized every control room in each of its 12 zones in order to prevent water-logging on internal colony roads.

The monsoon intensity across Haryana, Chandigarh, and Delhi was described as “vigorous” by the Met Office. The IMD states that monsoon activity is ‘vigorous’ if it is widespread or reasonably widespread and the observed rainfall exceeds four times the average.

The rain in July, which is vital for farming, is something the meteorologists are crossing their fingers for. Earlier, the weather service determined 2023 to be an El Nino year, which is often characterized by less precipitation.

Despite an “over 90% probability” that the season will be affected by El Nino, a worldwide weather disruptor, the IMD forecast a typical monsoon for the whole nation in May.

Hypotheses predict the monsoon will remain active for the next 4-5 days before dropping slightly. In the following 4-5 days, the west coast would see grave rainfall, according to M Rajeevan, a former secretary at the Union Ministry of Earth Sciences.

The residents of Delhi and Mumbai have been precautioned to stay indoors and safe during the monsoon. Moreover, precautions must be taken for further catastrophes.
