Monsoon effectively embraced Delhi on June 30, but since then rains have repeatedly missed the capital. For the past few days, the IMD has been struggling to make accurate predictions for the capital city.

Earlier, on July 4, the IMD had issued a yellow alert for July 5 and an orange alert for July 6, which was later shifted to July 7. The Meteorological Department later predicted “widespread to widespread rainfall activity” over western Uttar Pradesh, Punjab. Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and Rajasthan issued yellow alert on July 9 and July 10, warning of moderate rain in the capital on Sunday. But it did not rain in Delhi on any of these days.
