In the national capital Delhi, only 41.6 mm in the month of August. Rainfall was recorded, which is the lowest in 14 years. The main reason for this is the absence of a weather system in Northwest India. Meteorologists attribute the lack of rain this month to the development of three low-pressure areas over the north-west Bay of Bengal, which pulled the monsoon towards central India and did not allow it to move north for a long time. Experts have forecast that there is no chance of good rain in Delhi in the next five to six days, although the sky will remain cloudy. Mahesh Palawat, vice-president (climate change and meteorology), Skymet Weather, said, “Three low pressure areas (LPAs) developed over north-west Bay of Bengal in August. Due to this, good rains occurred in Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan.
