Heavy rains lashed parts of national capital today affecting traffic at various intersections and led to waterlogging on several roads. 

Heavy waterlogging was reported from Minto Bridge after heavy rainfall. Social media showed images of a bus getting stuck due to heavy waterlogging in the area. However, the passengers have been rescued to safety.

It was a humid morning in the city and the minimum temperature settled at 25 degrees Celsius, two notches below normal. 

The weatherman has predicted that rainfall will continue and the mercury is expected to settle below the normal levels. 

"Heavy rainfall is expected in various areas in the city during the day. The maximum temperature will settle around 35 degrees Celsius," an MeT official said. 

Earlier on Sunday, the maximum temperature was recorded at 37.8 degrees Celsius, while the minimum stood at 28.6 degrees Celsius.
