After few days of dry weather, Delhi may receive light rainfall on Thursday. A good spell of rain, however, is likely on Friday, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast.

According to MeT officials, the monsoon trough had shifted towards south resulting in more rain in Rajasthan and adjoining areas while Delhi is receiving only light showers. “The trough is likely to come close to Delhi by Thursday evening. A ‘moderate to heavy’ spell of showers is expected on Friday,” the official said.
