Weather Updates: Yellow Alert Issued in Delhi for Thursday

Weather Updates: Delhi received heavy rainfall on Wednesday, leading to waterlogging and traffic disruptions in several areas. More rainfall is expected Thursday, according to a forecast by the India Meteorological Department.

The IMD has also issued a ‘yellow’ alert for today, Thursday, warning of light to moderate rainfall. Moderate rainfall is also expected on Friday and Saturday, while light rainfall is a possibility on Sunday.

An IMD bulletin, on Wednesday, stated that extra rainfall activity is likely over Northwest India for the next three days. This is due to the monsoon trough being around its normal position. The low-pressure area of the trough is likely to remain near its normal position for the next two to three days, the bulletin said. 

The maximum temperature recorded on Wednesday was 35.1 degrees Celsius, which is close to normal for this time of the year. The minimum temperature was 28.2 degrees Celsius, a degree above the normal for this time of the year. The maximum temperature is expected to fall to about 33 degrees Celsius on Friday.

Although rains came as a respite from the scorching heat, they have caused extensive waterlogging across the national capital. This waterlogging has affected traffic on several bustling roads under the Public Works Department, as well as colony roads under the Municipal Corporation of Delhi.

The MCD received complaints of waterlogging from Satya Niketan, Vishnu garden, Janakpuri, Dwarka sector 3, Nehru Nagar, Prem Nagar Market near Thyagaraj stadium, Karol Bagh, Inderpuri, Mansarovar Garden, Tank road, West Patel Nagar. There were also reports of trees getting uprooted at Dwarka Sector 1, Tughlakabad village, Delhi gate, Paschim Vihar, and Netaji Subhash Place.

Traffic jams were caused due to waterlogging following heavy rainfall on Ring Road, Palam Metro station, and numerous other places.

A senior MCD official said pumps were installed at some places. Choke points were cleared and water eventually receded.

Vikram Singh, an Executive Engineer, said that in Gurgaon, many of the critical points such as all underpasses, Narsinghpur, Medanta road, Hero Honda Chowk, Sector 9A, Golf Course Road, Sector 30/31 dividing road, Mayfield Garden, Signature Tower, MDI Chowk, Atul Kataria Chowk and Rajeev Chowk were not waterlogged. 

“Waterlogging issues were reported on Maruti Road, Dundahera & Laxman Vihar. Concerned teams are looking into the matter,” he added.
