Monsoon unlikely over Delhi, Haryana and Punjab till July 7 | India News

NEW DELHI: With north-western part of the country reeling under heat wave conditions due to break in Monsoon, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Wednesday said further advance of southwest Monsoon into remaining parts of Rajasthan, Delhi, Haryana and Punjab is not likely till July 7.
Though there is no sign of revival in the Monsoon (over the next seven days) that entered into break phase over central and peninsular India as well, parts of northeast India, Bihar, West Bengal and east Uttar Pradesh will see heavy rainfall during the next 6-7 days which may even create flood-like situation in certain districts.
“As predicted, Monsoon enters into the break phase with little rain over the country. No signs of revival till 7th July. Heavy rains could trigger floods over NE and states like Bihar. Due to dry weather, temperatures will go up over NW India including Delhi with temps >40 degree C,” tweeted Madhavan Rajeevan, secretary, ministry of earth sciences (MoES).
The IMD’s monsoon data as on June 30 shows10% excess cumulative rainfall over the country as a whole, thanks to surplus rains in east, northeast and central India during the season’s first month. The weather department on Wednesday predicted heat wave conditions over some parts of Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, Rajasthan and western UP during “next two days”.
