Monsoon fails to keep date with Delhi
June 29, 2003 21:50 IST
The monsoon that was to arrive in Delhi on Sunday, has been delayed by two or three days, Indian Meteorological Officials said.
IMD Additional Director General S R Kalsi said the delay is an outcome of the changes in the circulation pattern over the northern plains.
However, pre-monsoon showers on Sunday brought down the mercury in Delhi and surrounding areas by 3.2 degree Celsius.
The IMD attributed the showers to a disturbance over Pakistan.
