New Delhi, Sep 25: Following overnight rains, the sky remained overcast in the national capital on Tuesday, with the Met predicting off and on showers through the day.
Rains have been lashing Delhi since the past two days causing a slowdown in vehicular movement following waterlogging. The road leading to Chirag Dilli, Badarpur, Mehrauli, Mayur Vihar, Minto bridge, and ITO came to a near standstill with vehicles moving at a snail’s pace on Monday morning.
The minimum temperature was recorded at 22 degrees Celsius, two notches below the season’s average. The city received 13.1 mm of light rainfall in the last 24 hours, an India Meteorological Department (IMD) official said.
“The sky will remain generally cloudy during the day with intermittent rains in parts of Delhi and NCR,” he said.
Humidity at 8.30 a.m. was recorded at 98 percent. The maximum temperature was likely to hover around 29 degrees Celsius.
On Monday, the maximum temperature settled at 27.8 degrees Celsius, six degrees below the average while the minimum temperature was recorded at 24 degrees Celsius, at par with the season’s average.
Monsoon rains in the national capital were likely to abate from Saturday.
