New Delhi: A day after the massive thunderstorm, the national capital experienced milder temperatures in the early hours of the morning.


According to the met department, the maximum temperature was 42.8 degrees Celsius, 2 notches above normal.

The minimum temperature on Friday was 29.1, while the maximum was recorded at 43.7 degree Celsius.

There is a possibility of a dust storm with light rainfall in the next 24 hours, the weatherman predicted.

In the morning, the humidity levels were recorded at 61 per cent.

A massive thunderstorm coupled with high-speed dusty winds hit the national capital on Friday evening, throwing life out of gear as it crippled road traffic, metro services, flight operations and power supply network.

At least 12 people were killed in the NCR region, including six in Delhi, in incidents of falling trees, collapse of walls and electrocution.
