New Delhi:

The residents of Delhi woke up to rain and gusty winds this morning as the city enjoys a break from a brutal heat spell. A thunderstorm forecast was issued earlier today for the national capital and nearby areas.

“A cluster of cloud patches are passing through the Delhi-NCR. Under its influence: Thunderstorm/ Duststorm with light to moderate intensity rain and gusty winds with speed of 40-70 Km/h would continue Delhi-NCR & adjoining areas during next 2 hours,” it said.

The mercury crossed the 45 degrees Celsius-mark earlier this week, shooting up the power demand in Delhi. But the city won’t see such brutal heat at least until May 30, according to the weather department.

Heatwave is declared when the maximum temperature reaches at least 40 degrees in the plains, 37 degrees in coastal areas and 30 degrees in hilly areas, and the departure is at least 4.5 degrees.
