Within the next two hours, Delhi and the surrounding national capital region are expected to see thunderstorms, duststorms, and mild to moderate rainfall, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD). According to the report, the present changes in the weather are the result of a group of cloud patches that have been spotted travelling over the Delhi-NCR region.
Days after IMD issued a heat wave warning for the national capital, Delhi experienced early morning showers, thunderstorms, and a dust storm. This is when the most recent notification was issued.
Following the update on the downpour, the weather organisation also sent a warning to Twitter. It advised residents to stay indoors and close their windows and doors, and it advised drivers to abide by traffic warnings when driving in and near the city. It also recommended avoiding travel if at all feasible.
The Delhi Airport has also issued a circular urging all passengers to contact their individual airlines for the most recent flight information due to the disruption caused by inclement weather.
IMD also recommended taking secure refuge and avoiding standing beneath trees. It advised not to lie on concrete floors or lean against concrete walls. All electrical equipment should be unplugged, according to the advice.
The national capital’s highest and minimum temperatures may range between 37 and 22, according to the weather department’s earlier predictions. Due to sporadic rains, the daytime temperature will be between 35 and 38 degrees Celsius for the next seven days.
