Rainy morning: Delhi-NCR wakes up to rain; waterlogging in several areas irks commuters

Heavy rain lashed parts of Delhi and its nearby areas on Monday morning, bringing a much-needed relief from discomfort of sultry weather.

The early morning spell of rain for the third consecutive day in Delhi, Noida brought down the maximum temperature. As per a forecast by the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Delhi-NCR is likely to witness light rain and cloudy sky on Monday.

With rain, waterlogging was also seen in some areas of Delhi and Noida. Heavy waterlogging was seen near Lodhi Road, towards INA market from Barapullah on Monday morning. Waterlogging was also witnessed outside the ACP office in Noida.

On Sunday, the maximum temperature in Delhi was 36.6 degrees Celsius, two notches below the normal. The humidity levels oscillated between 62 and 92 per cent, leading to a sultry weather.

During the next three days, the maximum temperature will hover around 35 degrees Celsius, the weather department said.

Pre-monsoon showers have been lashing parts of western UP, Delhi, Rajasthan and Haryana. After temperature soared above 40 degrees Celsius, Delhi-NCR witnessed thunderstorms, accompanied by rains on the weekend.

Weather experts say the monsoon is likely to arrive in Delhi two-three days earlier than its usual date on June 27, because of a cyclonic circulation that developed over West Bengal and moved towards southwest Uttar Pradesh on June 19 and June 20, and will almost simultaneously cover Haryana and Punjab.

The southwest monsoon has completely covered the southern and the eastern India and its angular curve is now passing eastern Uttar Pradesh through the middle of Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, according to weather forecasting agencies.
