The IMD has issued a yellow alert in Delhi, a warning for thunderstorms or light rain over the next six days (till June 20). Furthermore, owing to western disturbance and lower level easterlies, the national capital is likely to receive rainfall between June 16 and 18.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the impact of this western disturbance was felt over Delhi on Saturday and Sunday, with overcast skies expected on Monday as well. The mercury will, however, remain above 40°C.
IMD's Safdarjung observatory, considered representative of the city, recorded 40.2 degrees Celsius on Saturday -- around normal for this time of the year and nearly a degree up from a day ago -- even as parts of Delhi witnessed light rain in the evening.
