Rain and thunderstorms cause the delaying of ten flights in Delhi, and the IMD predicts further rain

After a fresh round of rain in the national capital on Tuesday, Delhiites awoke to a breezy and lovely morning. Heavy rain and thunderstorms hit the city, disrupting traffic and forcing many aircraft to be rerouted. “Ten Delhi-bound flights were diverted (nine from Jaipur and one from Lucknow) between 6.25 and 8 p.m. due to bad weather in Delhi,” an airport official said.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) reported strong to severe thunderstorms with lightning and gusty winds reaching speeds of 70-80 kilometers per hour in Delhi. The meteorological service issued a ‘yellow’ advisory for Wednesday, warning of traffic delays and flooding in low-lying areas due to rain. The maximum temperature is forecast to be approximately 35 degrees Celsius, according to the news agency.

Maximum temperatures are expected to be below 40 degrees until June 5. On Tuesday, the maximum temperature at Delhi’s principal weather station, Safdarjung Observatory, was 35.9 degrees Celsius, five degrees below usual.
