The Monsoons have reached most parts of India but the National Capital Region may have to wait for a few days due to an existing cyclonic circulation over eastern Uttar Pradesh. According to the India Meteorological Department, “large-scale atmospheric conditions are not favourable for further advance of Monsoon into Rajasthan, remaining parts of Gujarat, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi.” The progress of Monsoon could be slow in parts of Uttar Pradesh during next five days as well.
