Delhi this year has seen an erratic monsoon, with the season being one of the wettest since IMD started maintaining weather records. In the month of September, Delhi also recorded eight rainy days, which is unlikely for this time of the year. Usually, the rainiest month of the season is August.
“It is unlikely that the monsoon will withdraw anytime soon. We will have to wait and see how many records are set this year,” the IMD official added.
