The India Meteorological Department on Monday issued an alert for heavy rainfall in the national capital on July 29 and 30.

The weather department added that the power and water supply may be affected due to heavy rain. It also urged residents to adhere to traffic advisories and avoid going to areas prone to flooding.

Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of the IMD’s regional forecasting centre, said that the monsoon will start shifting towards the south from the foothills of the Himalayas. ”It [the monsoon] will be close to Delhi-NCR [National Capital Region] from Tuesday evening to Thursday,” he was quoted as saying by PTI.

”During this period, southwesterly winds from the Arabian Sea and easterly winds from the Bay of Bengal will reach Haryana, Delhi-NCR, west Uttar Pradesh and northeast Rajasthan,” he added. ”Under the influence of these systems, heavy to very heavy rainfall will occur over these areas.”
