Sunday did not live up to its name in the Capital, with the second half of a bright day overshadowed by dark clouds and unrelenting rainfall.
Even as several parts of Delhi experienced rains that began around 3.20pm and continued for over two hours, the Capital was left drenched, with 8.5 mm rainfall. The meteorological department has predicted light rain, hailstorm and squall next week, leaving cricket fans in the city a worried lot.
"Another western disturbance may hit north-western India on February 23, resulting in drizzle on February 24," said BP Yadav, director, weather forecast, Indian Meteorological Department. February 24 is when South Africa and West Indies clash at Ferozshah Kotla.
Water-logging, traffic jams and a road cave-in was reported in the city, making it seem as if the monsoons are here.
