After sweltering for a few days at temperatures close to 40 degrees Celsius, Mumbai had moderate rain and thunderstorms on the nights between Monday and Tuesday, providing a little reprieve for residents. India Meteorological Department (IMD) reports that the Delhi-NCR area is predicted to get some rainfall before the start of the weekend, providing a wet start to the week, therefore Delhi is also expected to see some reprieve from the increasing temperatures.
According to the IMD, Mumbai's rainfall was even lower than the allowable limit and was caused by the combination of a dry and a wet breeze. The IMD further said that during the next three to four days, a little rain might occur in several areas of Maharashtra.
On Thursday, Delhi is anticipated to see a largely overcast sky with a few isolated areas experiencing very light rain or drizzle. The Regional Weather Forecasting Centre (RWFC), New Delhi, has also issued a notice on anticipated rain activity in Delhi-NCR for the next four to five days.
