Monsoon to start withdrawing from Saturday
"There is nothing unusual about the good spell of rain we received this year. The withdrawal of southwest monsoon is likely to commence from parts of north India by September 29," said a scientist at the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
Last year, the rains began abating from September 27.
On Monday, the Palam observatory recorded 7.6 mm of rains and the Safdarjung observatory 8.8 mm.
Private weather forecasting agency Skymet termed it one of the best Septembers for Delhi in recent years.
"The city has recorded the second highest monthly rains, with the highest ever being 332 mm in September 2010," it said.
