As the residents got a relief from the dry spell with fresh showers, the weather department said the city is expected to see more rain and thunderstorms this week.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the region received 32 mm of rainfall as a result most of the areas witnessed waterlogging.

According to an IMD official, monsoon has arrived and the region will now witness quality rain.

It is predicted that the region will get heavy down pour at isolated places.

Even after a rainy day, both the maximum and the minimum temperatures were recorded three degrees above the average for this time of the season.

The minimum temperature was 32.7 degrees Celsius, four degrees higher than the previous day.

This year, the city has remained dry even as the neighbouring Delhi and Noida received quality rainfall in the past one month.

Lightening, light rain with thunderstorm was experienced at around mid night and the sky remained overcast throughout the day even though the cold breeze also brought the temperature down.

However, heavy downpour disturbed the traffic situation in various areas of the city.

Several internal sector roads and major junctions like Huda City Centre, Signature Tower road, Sector-31 road, Jharsa Chowk, Hero Honda Chowk and Iffco Chowk were waterlogged.

Meanwhile, doctors at the Civil Hospital in the city have advised people to avoid contact with rain as residents might get cold, flu, fever and other vector-borne diseases.

Also after rain, the cases related to dengue, malaria and chikungunya can further increase in number.

At present, there are five confirmed cases of dengue, 10 malaria cases , eight swine flu cases and 15 chikungunya cases in Gurgaon.
