    The MeT department also predicted heavy rainfall at isolated places in the national capital.

    Normally, the wind system reaches Delhi on June 27.

    According to weather experts, the earlier than usual arrival of the monsoon in Delhi can be attributed to a cyclonic circulation which moved towards southwest Uttar Pradesh on June 19 and June 20, helping monsoon advance further.
