New Delhi without dust storm in summer 2012

Dust storm is part of summer in New Delhi. This year has been an exception. No dry dust storm. The onset of summer was late. It started in mid May unlike mid April every year. Summer was hot enough. It did touch 48 degree celsius but there was no dust storm. High velocity air is part of summer when hot air shifts rapidly leaving the space for cold air to rush in but it did not happen this summer.
Today is unusually windy. Like summer but that is not unusual. It happens at this time when weather kick starts for winter. But this year the usual dry dust storm we’re absent in May, June or July. Storms did hit New Delhi but only as precursor to rain. No dry dust storm. Why?
It is no doubt that Delhi is much more green than what it used to be. I wonder if that is the reason for absence of dust storm.
We can only wonder? Why?
