Delhi and parts of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan will have to wait till July for the first monsoonal rains as the wind system is unlikely to cover the region in the next seven days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.

The northern limit of the southwest monsoon currently passes through Barmer, Bhilwara, Dholpur, Aligarh, Meerut, Ambala and Amritsar.

"Present meteorological conditions and model forecasts indicate that large-scale features, as well as the prevailing wind patterns over the region, are not likely to be favourable during the next one week for further advance of the southwest monsoon into the remaining parts of Rajasthan, west Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and Punjab," the IMD said in a statement.

India has received 37 per cent excess rainfall during the monsoon season so far, the India Meteorological Department said.
