The Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR) woke up to heavy showers on Thursday morning. Ghaziabad was the worst-affected area with a road in Vasundhara having caved in resulting in a flood-like situation, news agency ANI reported. Waterlogging in parts of Noida, Ghaziabad and Gurgaon have brought traffic movement to a near-halt in these areas.

“The minimum temperature recorded at 8.30 AM was 26 degrees Celsius, normal for this time of the year. The humidity level was 93 per cent,” PTI quoted a MeT official as saying.

The Safdarjung observatory recorded 4.6 mm rainfall till 8.30 AM, while the rainfall recorded by Palam observatory was 9.3 mm. The Lodhi Road observatory received 5.3 mm rainfall and the ridge area recorded 8.8 mm rainfall. The Delhi Traffic Police has listed out routes to avoid.

There is yet no report about the cancellation of flights and trains owing to the rains. The Indian Meteorological Department has predicted heavy to very heavy rainfall in Delhi NCR and heavy rains at isolated places across northern India over the next five days. There would be no significant change in the temperatures though, the department said. West and north-west region of the country is expected to witness mild rainfall as well in the next five days.

The Delhi-NCR region had witnessed heavy showers briefly on Monday which had toned down the flaring temperature of the region. 

The southwest monsoon was expected to strike northern India on July 29 but it made sluggish progress last week, delaying rains to parts of west and north India.
