Delhi receives most of its rain in July and August. But this time these two months were mostly dry, said a met official.
"The current weather is due to low pressure system coming from south-west Uttar Pradesh merging with western disturbance from Himachal in Uttarakhand. Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh will receive good rainfall over the weekend. Delhi weather will be soothing," said Mahesh Palawat, director of private weather forecasting agency Skymet.
However, commuters had a tough time yesterday as traffic came to a halt in many parts of the national capital due to massive waterlogging. Motorists remained stuck in jams for hours at many points. The ITO was severely affected as people were stuck in traffic snarls from afternoon till evening. Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg and the area around the India Gate were also affected.
The Delhi Traffic Police's Twitter handle continuously posted updates about the traffic situation.
