Even as India Meteorological Department had predicted just light rain for Chandigarh on Tuesday, monsoon picked up in intensity, showering 52.4mm rain within just an hour and a half in the evening.
According to data available till 8:30pm, the city has recorded 110mm rain in the first week of July.
While it started raining in western sectors around 7pm, eastern parts of the city received the showers by around 7:30pm. Power outages were reported in parts of the city, while traffic congestion was reported at busy intersections, such as the Sector 34/35/43/44 roundabout, Sector 18/19 light point, Hallomajra Chowk, Tribune Chowk and GMCH Chowk. In Sectors 38-West and 40B, residents complained of waterlogging outside their houses due to blocked road gullies.
According to IMD officials, chances of light rain will continue on Wednesday, and it will again pick up in intensity from Thursday.

“Due to a cloud mass forming over the city, we received rain on Tuesday. The monsoon system is strengthening and moving northwards from central India. Moderate rain up to 60mm can be expected from Thursday onwards with a slight chance for heavy rain along with a dip in temperature,” said the weatherman.
Monsoon was declared in Chandigarh on June 24. However, by the end of June, only 35.3mm was recorded. IMD regional director Surender Paul said: “Monsoon is going on expected lines. We are expecting 107% of the normal monsoon rain this year, as it started before the normal date. “
Meanwhile, maximum temperature went up from 35.4°C on Monday to 35.5°C on Tuesday. Minimum temperature went up from 26.2°C to 27.7°C on Tuesday. In the next three days, maximum temperature is likely to remain between 32 and 35 degrees while minimum will remain around 24 to 25 degrees.

Normally Business men will not do that and Thief will not like to steal Tomatoes in such huge quantity.

Maybe this man went away in panic as local union must have harassed him, a usual thing in Himanchal.

I think he will pay later digitally to these Mandi fellows. These local mandi agents are greedy fellows and mostly criminals too, who want to deal in black cash only.

Or Maybe he paid to mandi middlemen and these middle men do not want to pass on such high rates, tomatoes are fetching nowdays in rains, to poor tomato farmers.

Weak Monsoon Phase Continues in Delhi This Week; Temperatures to Stay Below 37°C
By TWC India Edit Team

Despite the ongoing southwest monsoon season Delhi continues to record less amount of rains. As per the India Meteorological Department (IMD) records, the capital city has recorded 46% rainfall deficiency during this monsoon period since June 1.
As per the forecasts, overcast conditions will prevail over the national capital this week with the possibility of light or drizzling rain. The temperatures are likely to drop owing to generally cloudy conditions, as per the IMD. Forecasts indicate the possibility of thunderstorms accompanied by gusty winds blowing at the speed of 30-40 kmph during evening hours.
As per The Weather Channel’s next 10-day forecast, there is only a 20% possibility of rain between Wednesday-Friday.

The IMD states that the primary reason for lesser than normal rains over Delhi this week is the shifting of monsoon trough (an extended long-pressure area that drives monsoon rains) further towards the north. Due to this, the IMD describes the monsoon activity over NCR as ‘weak’ with only isolated rainfall.
The drier-than-normal phase of monsoon has troubled Delhi ever since its onset on June 25. Between June 1 and July 14, Delhi has received ‘deficient’ rainfall of 80 mm against the normal of 147 mm. According to the IMD data, all the nine districts of Delhi have recorded rainfall deficit, with the northwest Delhi receiving a mere 13 mm rainfall and clocking the maximum shortfall of 89%.
Delhi is among the very few regions witnessing low rainfall activity despite the two-day early arrival of monsoon. Overall, India has witnessed surplus rainfall activity this monsoon season with excess precipitation of 11% so far.
The weather is likely to turn unstable between July 16 and 19, with possible evening thunderstorms. The Regional Met Department has placed a yellow watch over the capital city on these days as there will be generally cloudy sky with light rain and thundershowers accompanied by gusty winds. The yellow watch urges residents to be ‘aware’ of the weather conditions.
As the monsoon rains played hide and seek, the residents continued to witness scorching summer heat till this week with temperatures repeatedly surging beyond 38°C. Going forward, some relief is expected with maximum temperatures hovering around 35°C from July 16 to 19. Even the minimum temperatures are likely to drop to around 25°C.
On July 14, the ground-based station of Safdarjung recorded a mercury level of 38°C, while the minimum for the day was 28°C. Some silver lining on the weather front— despite the heat and less rainfall activity— is the air quality. While the air quality dropped from the ‘satisfactory’ levels post the unlock, the pollution levels have remained at ‘moderate’ levels since the past few days. As per the SAFAR model, the overall AQI of the city stands at 128 on Tuesday.

Monsoon diet: Foods you should avoid and what you must eat more of during rainy season

Instead of thinking just about what to exclude completely from your diet during monsoon, you should concentrate on healthy practices that ensure good health and safety.

Myupchar July 14, 2020 14:00:57 IST

1594749630827.png



A balanced diet which includes seasonal foods is not only healthy but also keeps the ecosystem and biodiversity in mind. The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation calls this type of ethical and nutritious food pattern a sustainable diet, and ancient Ayurvedic texts — according to a study in the AYU Journal in 2011 — call it ritucharya or diet and behaviour according to seasons.
Ritucharya is considered to be extremely healthy and capable of preventing diseases if you stick to seasonally produced foods, especially during season changes. The monsoon season is one of plenty in this regard, with lots of veggies and fruits available throughout the months of this season. But, it also brings its own set of disadvantages because this season is known for a higher prevalence of food poisoning, diarrhoea and other diseases.
“Monsoons are a period of infections,” says Akanksha Mishra, a nutrition and wellness expert associated with myUpchar. “Cold and cough, malaria, dengue, stomach infections, fever, typhoid, and pneumonia are very common during monsoon. Due to the risks of all these infections, we always ask people to have a simple, balanced, freshly cooked meal that’s easy to digest during monsoon season.”


Common dietary mistakes during monsoon season
Instead of thinking just about what to exclude completely from your diet during monsoon, you should concentrate on healthy practices that ensure good health and safety. The following are some common dietary mistakes people usually make during monsoons, but shouldn’t.
1. Eating fried food: While it’s perfectly fine to indulge in fried foods like pakoras once in a while, but you should take care of the proportion you eat because an excess can cause indigestion, diarrhoea and other issues. Also, do not reuse the oil you’ve fried in once because that can be toxic.
2. Not washing green leafy veggies properly: Many studies, including one in Applied and Environmental Microbiology in 2015, have shown that green leafy vegetables are the most prone to housing a variety of bacteria and fungi -- all of which get the most conducive environment to grow in monsoons. Washing these veggies thoroughly and cooking them on high heat is very important.
3. Eating meat and seafood: Monsoon is the season during which fish and seafood breed, so it’s ethical to refrain from consuming these foods during the monsoon months. The risks of waterborne diseases and food poisoning are also high during monsoon, so that’s another reason to avoid seafood and meat products that could be carriers of infection.
4. Eating outside: The temperature and moisture levels during monsoon are perfect for bacterial and fungal growth -- and there’s the added risk of waterborne diseases. So, it’s best to avoid eating out, especially street food, no matter how much you crave it.
Foods to include in your monsoon diet
The following are some food groups you should include plenty of, during monsoons, in your diet:
1. Fluids: Drinking plenty of safe, potable water is as important as consuming warm, freshly prepared kadha, broths and soups. These are rehydrating and good for your immune system.
2. Fruits: Seasonal fruits like pears, jamun, plum, cherries, lychee, peaches and pomegranates should be consumed more for nutrients like fibre, vitamin A and C and antioxidants.
3. Vegetables: This is the season of gourds, like bottle gourd, bitter gourd, pointed gourd, ridge gourd, Indian squash, etc. Add plenty of these veggies in your daily diet.
4. Spices: Include spices like turmeric and ginger in your diet because these have antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. Simply home-cooked food should be your target in this weather.

Delhi Weather Forecast News Update: दिल्ली में 43 फीसद पिछड़ गया मानसून, जानें- क्या कहते हैं मौसम विज्ञानी


Delhi Weather Forecast News Update दिल्ली में मानसून के आगमन की तारीख 27 जून है जबकि इस बार यह 25 जून को ही आ गया। बावजूद इसके कोई फायदा नहीं हुआ।

नई दिल्ली [संजीव गुप्ता]। Delhi Weather Forecast News Update: इस साल कहने को भले ही दिल्ली में मानसून दो दिन पहले आ गया हो, लेकिन एक दिन भी झमाझम बारिश नहीं हुई। पखवाड़े भर से ज्यादा मानसून को दस्तक दिए हो गए, इस दौरान ज्यादातर बादल सिर्फ उमड़-घुमड़कर गरजते ही रहे। कहीं-कहीं सिर्फ छिटपुट बारिश ही हुई। ऐसे में शुरुआती दिनों में ही राजधानी दिल्ली में मानसून 43 फीसद पिछड़ गया है।यह अलग बात है कि अभी अगले एक सप्ताह के दौरान भी अच्छी बारिश की संभावना नहीं जताई जा रही। वहीं, मौसम विभाग के क्षेत्रीय पूर्वानुमान केंद्र प्रमुख कुलदीप श्रीवास्तव की मानें तो अभी अगले एक सप्ताह तक अच्छी बारिश होने के आसार नहीं हैं। बीच-बीच में केवल छिटपुट बारिश ही होगी।
दिल्ली में मानसून के आगमन की तारीख 27 जून है, जबकि इस बार यह 25 जून को ही आ गया। बावजूद इसके कोई फायदा नहीं हुआ। सफदरजंग पर अभी तक 70.8 मिमी बारिश होनी चाहिए थी मगर हुई है केवल 44 मिमी. यानी 38 फीसद कम। लोधी रोड पर होनी चाहिए थी 70.8 मिमी बारिश, जबकि हुई 50.1 मिमी यानी 29 फीसद कम। समूची दिल्ली की बात करें तो एक जून से अभी तक 141.1 मिमी बारिश होनी चाहिए थी, लेकिन हुई है केवल 80 मिमी. यानी 43 फीसद कम।

इस बीच सोमवार को भी दिल्ली में उमस भरा मौसम बना रहा। बादल छाए जरूर, मगर बरसे नहीं। सोमवार को दिल्ली का अधिकतम तापमान सामान्य से दो डिग्री अधिक 38.2 डिग्री सेल्सियस दर्ज किया। न्यूनतम तापमान सामान्य से एक डिग्री कम 26.2 डिग्री सेल्सियस दर्ज किया गया। नमी का स्तर 87 से 48 फीसद रहा।
मौसम विभाग के अनुसार, मंगलवार को आंशिक रूप से बादल छाए रहेंगे। गर्जन वाले बादल बनने की संभावना है, लेकिन बारिश होने के आसार नहीं हैं। अधिकतम और न्यूनतम तापमान क्रमश: 38 और 27 डिग्री सेल्सियस रहने की संभावना है।

Heavy Rain In Several States But Monsoon Activity Subdued In Delhi


Monsoon updates: Several areas in Bihar were inundated in heavy rain




New Delhi:
Heavy rain lashed several parts of northern, eastern and coastal India on Sunday, but the monsoon remained subdued in Delhi. The national capital has recorded 40 per cent less rainfall despite an early onset, the weather office said. The India Meteorological Department (IMD), in its forecast for Delhi for the next seven day said, the city is likely to see light rain as the monsoon trough has shifted further north.
"Usually, during this time, a strong weather system forms in the Bay of Bengal, moves towards northwest India and enhances monsoon activity," Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of the Delhi forecasting centre of IMD told news agency Press Trust of India.
In July, at least three weather stations in Delhi have recorded less than normal rain. Since June 1, when the monsoon set in, the city has recorded just 79 mm rainfall against the normal of 132 mm, a deficiency of 40 per cent, the report says,
In neighbouring Rajasthan, too, monsoon has remained weak over the past few days but is expected to pick up from Tuesday. Several parts of Haryana and Punjab received heavy rain on Sunday. Himachal Pradesh is expected to get heavy rainfall on July 13 and 16, the met department said.


In eastern India, the flood situation is grim in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. Several areas in Bihar are also inundated due to continuous rain. In north Bengal, rivers like the Teesta, Torsa and Mansai are in spate causing floods in Jalpaiguri and Coochbehar districts. The met office has forecast more rain in the next couple of days.
Moving westwards, Mumbai and its suburbs are expected to get intermittent rainfall until July 16. The IMD has predicted strong winds with speed up to 60 km/hr over south-west and west-central Arabian Sea.
