The city may have witnessed another rainy day on Wednesday but the coming five days will bring some respite to the city. The Met Department has predicted a cloudy sky for Thursday with some chances of rain and thundershowers.

"After Thursday, we are expecting a decline in the rainfall for the coming three to four days," said a Met official.

Rain Gauges recorded up to 50.1 mm of rainfall (Ridge area) in the city on Wednesday.

The level of Yamuna, meanwhile, rose to 205.93 metres on Wednesday.

"The water level will come down by around 10 cm on Thursday morning and is expected to rise again after that," said Ish Kumar, chief engineer, Irrigation and Flood Control Department. The danger level of the Yamuna is 204.83 metres.

Fearing danger from the fast flowing river, the Old Railway Bridge was closed at noon, disrupting both train and road traffic. The authorities have set up tents to provide shelter to the displaced.
