NEW DELHI: A southward shift of the monsoon trough is unlikely to bring much rain to the capital until Tuesday.
India Meteorological Department forecasts it to shift closer to the NCR only by Wednesday, which could bring moderate to heavy rain in the city.
IMD has put out a “yellow” alert for the next two days, forecasting light rain, with an “orange” alert in place only for Wednesday.
Met officials, however, claimed the intensity of rain could increase and bring moderate to heavy rain between August 26 and 28.
Kuldeep Srivastava, scientist at IMD, said light rain, accompanied with gusty winds is likely to occur until Tuesday, with moderate rains returning to the region from Wednesday. “This spell could extend until Friday,” Srivastava explained.
