Heavy rain throws traffic out of gear in Delhi-NCR

The maximum temperature is likely to be around 30 degrees Celsius, while the minimum around 23 degrees Celsius.

Bringing respite from the sweltering heat and humidity in the Delhi and National Capital Region, people woke up to a cloudy morning on Friday.

As expected by Skymet Weather, rains have already started over the national capital and its adjoining areas of Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Gurugram.

“Generally partly cloudy sky with possibility of light to moderate rain or thunder showers”, an India Meteorological Department (IMD) official told IANS.

While the showers brought down maximum temperature in the city to around the 28-degree celsius mark, the joy was shortlived for evening commuters.

According to reports, the low-pressure area is moving in a northwest direction towards Delhi-NCR.

In addition to this, a fresh western disturbance is also affecting Jammu and Kashmir and neighbouring areas, which will further enhance the rain activity.
