Traffic jams were witnessed on Wednesday evening at the DND expressway and Kalindi Kunj after rains lashed Delhi-NCR. Both routes were blocked.
While the Kalindi Kunj road was closed after a tree fell on the road, DND was shut after an advertisement board fell on the road.
Thunderstorms and rain lashed parts of the national capital, bringing respite from the stifling heat.
The rain occurred under the influence of a cyclonic circulation over north Rajasthan, and a trough running from north Pakistan to a low pressure area over the Bay of Bengal, the India Meteorological Department said.
Light rains and thunderstorms with winds gusting up to 50 kilometers per hour were witnessed in parts of Delhi, said Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of the regional forecasting centre of the IMD.
The mercury is expected to stay low in the next few days as moisture-laden easterly winds due to the low pressure area in the Bay of Bengal will bring rains in Delhi-NCR on June 12 and June 13, he said. No heat wave is expected in the capital till June 15, the senior scientist said.
