Delhi rain, thunderstorm brings down temperature: 11 degrees in 1.5 hours | Latest News Delhi

Delhi:

Delhi was much in need of a relief amid intense heatwave over the last few weeks and heavy rain and thunderstorms did just that. The mercury dropped by around 11 degrees Celsius in nearly 1.5 hours on Monday morning. “Today, between 5:40 am and 7 am, temperature fell by 11 degree Celsius, from 29 degree Celsius to 18 degree Celsius,” the India Meteorological Department said as per news agency ANI.

According to private weather forecasting agency, Skymet Weather, mercury in Delhi went down by “10 degree in one hour.” The temperature dropped from 29 degrees at 5:30 am to 19 degrees at 6:30 am. “Today Delhi may record the lowest minimum temperature of the month. Heatwave will not make a comeback anytime soon over north India including Delhi NCR,” Skymet’s vice president Mahesh Palawal tweeted.

Many parts in the national capital and nearby cities were waterlogged due to the heavy showers. Power blackouts were also reported.

On Sunday, Safdarjung – considered to be the key centre for monitoring Delhi weather – recorded a maximum temperature of 39.3 degrees Celsius, a degree below normal for this time of the year and three lower than Saturday’s high, news agency PTI reported. The city logged a minimum temperature of 23.1°C – three degrees below normal.

Last week, the city had witnessed a new record when a tormenting heatwave pushed the maximum temperature in the city to 49 degrees.
