New Delhi facing rain and thunderstorms dropping temperature to 18.2 degrees

New Delhi faces rain and thunderstorms

New Delhi faces rain and thunderstorms. The state of Delhi saw moderate rainfall followed by a hailstorm on Saturday, 18th March 2023. This definitely gave a break to the people of Delhi from the hot weather. The capital of India has now recorded a temperature of 18.2 degrees Celsius. This is two degrees lower than the average seasonal temperature. However, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted that the state will face more rainfall and even thunderstorms. The weather department also mentioned that the northern and eastern parts of New Delhi will be seeing moderate rainfall and thunderstorms.  

The Indian Meteorological Department also mentioned in a forecast that thunderstorms with light to moderate rain as well as gushes of wind up to 30-40 kmph might be seen in northeast Delhi and the areas nearby. The IMD also states that hailstorms might take place in areas such as Delhi University, Civil Lines, Noida and many more areas.  

Message from Soma Sen Roy, IMD scientist

Soma Sen Roy, an IMD scientist also predicted that the western disturbances may get deeper and stronger. “This month we are seeing western disturbances getting deep. These deep western disturbances when interacting with Indian regions with the low-level wind that generally comes due to summer heating increase the severity of thunderstorms.” She also added, “Yesterday we issued an orange alert. We had hailstorms and thunderstorms across India. Today we expect the weather to be focused in east peninsular India, east-central India, and east and northeast India.” 

Other than Delhi, the Indian Meteorological Department has also foreseen rain and thunderstorms with light intensity in various areas of Haryana. These areas include Kaithal, Narwana, Rajaund and even Safidon. Various isolated areas in the state of Delhi experienced traces of rain and thunderstorms on Friday but they were too low to be measured.
