Heavy rainfall with lightning and thunderstorm lashed parts of the national capital on Sunday, bringing respite from the scorching heat. The NCR (National Capital Region) like Nodia, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad also witnessed heavy rainfall. Regional Weather Forecasting Centre (RWFC) predicted, light to moderate intensity rain would occur over and adjoining areas of entire Delhi and NCR.
The RWFC provides the weather forecasts for North-West India and the Delhi NCR region. Earlier June 22, the national capital woke up to pleasant weather after receiving light rainfall.
Earlier on June 21, several parts of Gurugram witnessed waterlogging following heavy rainfall in the morning. The water especially clogged the expressway after the rains, causing a traffic jam for up to 5 kilometers. People were highly inconvenienced as massive delays were caused, and public transport was also hindered.
A bus full of passengers was stuck in the waterlogged conditions for more than an hour and could do nothing but wait.
