Why is it raining heavily now? What is the reason?

Two distinct weather systems are responsible for the heavy rainfall in and around the national capital. The first is the formation of a low pressure area, with a cyclonic circulation located over northwest MP/southwest UP and extending east to west UP, south Haryana and Delhi NCR. Another reason is the formation of the Western Disturbance System. This system is preventing the low pressure area from moving westward.
