Parts of Delhi recorded heavy rainfall on Wednesday leading to waterlogging and traffic disruptions in several places. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast expects more rainfall in Delhi today.
The IMD has also issued a ‘yellow’ alert for today, with light to moderate rainfall on the forecast. Moderate rainfall is also likely on Friday and Saturday, while light rainfall is a possibility on Sunday. An IMD bulletin issued Wednesday said enhanced rainfall activity is likely over Northwest India for the next three days. This is on account of the monsoon trough being near its normal position. A western disturbance, which is a storm that originates in the Mediterranean region, also lies over north Pakistan and the neighbourhood.
