Meteorological Department had expressed the possibility of rain
According to Mahesh Palawat, Chief Meteorologist, Skymet Weather, the Monsoon Trough was persisting in West and South of Delhi. Due to this rain has been recorded in Palwal and Rewari areas. The Meteorological Department had expressed the possibility of heavy rain on Sunday a day earlier. In such a situation, people suffering from the scorching heat were expecting heavy rain. Heavy rains led to waterlogging in many areas of Delhi, disrupting traffic and causing inconvenience to motorists. Long queues of vehicles were seen due to water logging on the road near Aurobindo Marg, Mandi House and ITO near AIIMS. Let us inform that the monsoon usually arrives in the national capital by June 27 but this time it has come with a delay of 16 days.
