Weather July 02 forecast: Rain and thundershowers likely in Delhi NCR; flood alert in Jammu and Kashmir
Monsoon has almost covered the entire nation triggering landslides in some hill states. In some part of the country it brought relief from the scorching heat weather and in some parts, there were landslides. Four troops of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police were killed in Arunachal Pradesh.
Monsoon has now reached Sriganganagar in West Rajasthan. Normally, at this time Sriganganagar doesn't get the monsoon.
"The monsoon covered the entire country," said Mritunjay Mohapatra, additional director general of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD).
Here is a look at how the rains affected other states in the country in the last two days:
The maximum temperature in New Delhi could still touch 35 degrees Celsius, the IMD said.
"The maximum temperature will be around 35 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature is expected to settle at 27.5 degrees Celsius, and also thundershower is likely in Delhi and NCR", a met official said. The humidity level is expected to be around 79 per cent.
The showers in Delhi pushed the humidity up to 90 per cent, even as the mercury settled marginally below normal. The monsoon winds blew away the dust from Delhi's air, and the city breathed the cleanest air in nearly a year, authorities said.
Flood situation has been reported in Jammu and Kashmir and it has brought the bad memories from the past. September 2014 floods in Jammu and Kashmir is now haunting the residents of Srinagar on Friday as a houseboat went underwater in the swelling Jhelum after incessant rain.
