Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Late on Monday night, Delhi experienced light rainfall in several areas, resulting in a noteworthy 6-degree drop in temperature. The unexpected weather change took many residents by surprise, as the city transitioned from a high of 29°C to a cooler 23°C within a mere 24-hour period.

Rainfall in Delhi, Suburbs Leads to Temperature Drop

The sudden rainfall had a significant impact on the temperature across the national capital and its surrounding areas. The unexpected change in weather was a welcome relief for residents, offering a temporary respite from the sweltering heat that had persisted in the region.

Traffic Disruptions and Congestion

The visual evidence from areas like Rafi Marg and Moti Bagh confirmed the light to moderate-intensity rains. These showers, although not heavy, were substantial enough to create minor traffic jams and congestion on the roads. Commuters in various parts of the city found themselves navigating through slower traffic conditions due to the wet and slippery road surfaces.

Weather Center’s Prediction

Prior to the rain, the regional weather center had issued predictions about the possibility of light to moderate-intensity rainfall, with localized heavy rain in certain parts of Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR). This forecast was particularly relevant for areas such as Ghaziabad, Noida, Dadri, Greater Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad, and Manesar, among others.

The Regional Weather Forecasting Centre (RWFC) reported on X that the region could experience thunderstorms with light to moderate-intensity rain, along with gusty winds reaching speeds of 30-50 km/h. These conditions were expected to prevail for a duration of two hours.

In addition to the forecast for Delhi and NCR, the weather center also provided predictions for several areas in Uttar Pradesh, where thunderstorms with light to moderate-intensity rain were anticipated.

Nationwide Rainfall Predictions

While the late-night rain brought relief to Delhi and its suburbs, the Indian Meteorological Department issued predictions for light to moderate rainfall in various parts of the northeast region in the coming days. Tamil Nadu and Kerala were also expected to experience heavy to very heavy rainfall.

Rainfall in Tamil Nadu

In the meantime, parts of Tamil Nadu, particularly Dindigul district, received heavy rainfall on Monday morning. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) reported that Dindigul town received 35 mm of rainfall, while Kodaikanal’s Rose Garden witnessed a 30 mm spell. Kamatchipurm received 11.5 mm of rainfall, and Briyant Park in Kodaikanal observed a substantial 43.6 mm of rainfall.

The unexpected rainfall in various regions serves as a reminder of the unpredictability of weather patterns and highlights the importance of staying informed and prepared for sudden weather changes. As the region welcomes the cooler temperatures following the late-night showers, residents are advised to exercise caution on the wet roadways and to stay updated on further weather developments.
