Earlier on Sunday, senior scientist at the IMD Rajendra Kumar Jenamani had said, "North-west India, particularly Delhi, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh will get good rain on September 23."
Mr Jenamani added that overall, India has received seven per cent more rainfall this year, but north-west India saw 15 per cent less than normal rain so far. The weather expert attributed this to fewer Western disturbances in northwest India this year.
