Delhites finally got some respite as rain gods finally smiled. It was drizzling when this report was being prepared as the weather turned pleasant. Delhi won't complain today as the monsoon is already delayed in Delhi-NCR.
However, like every rain, this time to people got stuck in traffic as Delhi struggled with roadblocks.
दिल्ली- एनसीआर में मानसून ने दी दस्तक।झमाझम बारिश से लोगों को मिली गर्मी और उमस से राहत।मौसम विभाग का कहना हैं कि दिल्ली- एनसीआर में रुक-रुक कर बारिश होती रहेगी। देखिये नोएडा-ग्रेटर नोएडा एक्सप्रेसवे पर बारिश का नज़ारा। @indiatvnews @IndiaTVHindi pic.twitter.com/JHP5IM6bWI— Atul Bhatia (@atul_bhatia1) July 15, 2019
There have been reports of heavy traffic on Delhi's major roads. Ring road at the heart of Delhi saw people stuck in traffic from Dhaula Kuan all the way till South Delhi's Lajpat Nagar.
Historically Delhi records over 50 per cent of its rainfall in the months of June and July. 2019 is, however, turning out to be one of the driest monsoons in the recent past.
Spells of rain from Monday to Wednesday could be a short-lived respite as the capital is expected to experience another dry spell around July 20-July 22.
