New Delhi welcomed much-needed rainfall with thunderstorms and heavy winds on Friday bringing in a brief relief for residents experiencing the soaring temperatures and heatwaves in India’s national capital. As per the Met department, for the last four days, Delhi was reeling under a severe heatwave with the mercury soaring well above the 40-degree Celsius mark.

Earlier in the day, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) had said that “isolated and scattered thunderstorm activity accompanied by lightning and rainfall is likely" in Delhi and its nearby states, but no favourable conditions are likely to develop for further advancement of southwest monsoon as the heatwave continues.

“Hence, subdued rainfall activity is very likely to continue to prevail over Northwest, Central and Western parts of Peninsular India during next 5-6 days," IMD stated on its official Twitter handle.
