Yellow alert issued for the nation’s capital today, the NCR will receive moderate rainfall

Weather conditions in Delhi were hot and humid on Monday. The daytime temperature, however, stabilized at 36.8 degrees Celsius, which is normal for this time of year. The low also recorded 27.4 degrees Celsius, which is also the average for the month. Humidity levels, however, fluctuated between 62% and 89%, making conditions very uncomfortable for Delhiites.

According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the sweltering weather will come to an end as a good amount of rain is expected in the nation’s capital and its adjoining areas like Noida and Gurugram today. While heavy rain is expected on Wednesday July 6th.

The IMD issued a yellow alert for Tuesday and an orange alert for Wednesday, warning of moderate to heavy rain or thunderstorms.

The IMD uses four color codes for weather warnings – green (no action needed), yellow (watch and stay up to date), orange (be prepared) and red (act).

The meteorologist forecast mostly cloudy skies for Tuesday with the possibility of light to moderate rain or thunderstorms. The maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to hover around 36 degrees Celsius and 26 degrees Celsius, respectively.

The IMD has also issued an alert for heavy to very heavy rains in 15 districts of Madhya Pradesh. This can help the state cover the monsoon deficit.

“The monsoon covered the whole MP on July 1. The state, so far, has received 11% less rainfall than the normal average. Between June 1 and July 4, it received 147.1 millimeters of rain against a normal average of 164.7 mm,” said Singh, a science assistant at the IMD center in Bhopal.
