New Delhi: Lack of rain will likely to push the mercury further up in Delhi over the next two days, the weather department said on Tuesday.
The Palam weather station has recorded 30.3 mm against the 50-year average of 84.9 mm, according to IMD data.
Delhi recorded 237 mm of rain in August, the highest for the month in seven years.
The IMD has also said that monsoon is likely to stay longer in Delhi and start withdrawing only in the "initial days of October".
The wind system had reached Delhi on June 25, two days earlier than normal.
