Delhiites woke up to a pleasant morning on Wednesday as the cloudy skies and cool winds brought the temperature down in the capital, providing respite from the prevailing sultry conditions. The IMD has predicted light light rain or thundershowers in the city during the day with moderate precipitation likely on Thursday.
According to the weather department, the maximum temperature is likely to hover around 30 degrees Celsius over the next few days. After a large rain deficit in August, monsoon activity has remained subdued in Delhi and neighbouring areas in September so far, it said. Delhi has recorded above-normal maximum temperatures on most of the days in September owing to the deficit rainfall, as per the weather office.
Mumbai witnessed heavy showers in the early hours of Wednesday, causing waterlogging in some low-lying areas but the water receded gradually as the rain intensity reduced in the morning. IMD has predicted a cloudy sky and moderate rain in the city and suburbs in the next 24 hours with a possibility of heavy to very heavy rainfall in isolated places.
