New Delhi: Rains lashed several parts of the national capital in the evening after dust-laden winds swept the city, even as the maximum temperature settled at 37.8 degrees Celsius.

Humidity levels oscillated between 77 per cent and 49 per cent.

"The maximum temperature was recorded at 37.8 degrees Celsius, a notch above the normal while the minimum temperature settled at 29.9 degrees Celsius, two notches above normal," an MeT Department official said.

At least 24 Delhi-bound flights were diverted to other destinations due to rains in the city. Most of the diversions took place between 8.45 and 9.45 pm. They included five Air India flights, besides flights of other private carriers, sources in the Delhi airport said.
