New Delhi: Delhi woke up to a rainy Thursday morning. MeT department has said the capital received 25.8 mm rainfall till 8:30 am. The minimum temperature was recorded 25.2 degrees celsius, two notches below the season's average. With the progression of the day, city folk began making way to work and pictures describing their complaints started flooding the internet, including complaints about water logging and traffic congestion.
    
Some even found fun amidst all the discussion:
  
Delhi Traffic police's twitter handle gave out advisories as well. Traffic remained heavy in South Delhi's Vayusenabad. Their helpline received over 70 complaints of waterlogging, while many traffic signals also stopped functioning due to the rain.

A senior Traffic police official said that most of the complaints were related to South Delhi neighbourhoods such as Nizammudin, Malviya Nagar and Okhla, among others. Over 20 complaints were reported from East Delhi too.

"Such was the traffic jam due to the water logging that I was stuck in the Lajpat Nagar-Ashram stretch for one-and-a-half hours. It felt as if no cars were moving. If such is the condition then better Delhi does not receive rain," PR professional Govind Pradhan, whose office is in Noida, told IANS.
 
The rain that has aided in bringing the city's temperature down, is likely to continue throughout the day, informed the India Meteorological Department.

Wednesday's maximum temperature was recorded 28 degrees Celsius while the maximum temperature was recorded at 36 degrees Celsius.
