Rains lash Delhi-NCR, bring respite from scorching heat
Rains lashed large parts of Delhi-NCR, including Noida, on Monday, bringing down the maximum temperatures below normal limits in most places.
The national capital received a heavy downpour in the afternoon after more than a week. The maximum temperature here dropped by two notches to settle at 33 degrees Celsius.
Despite cloud formation over the region, the area has witnessed a dry spell.
"The sky will remain generally cloudy with light rain or drizzle expected. The city is likely to receive light rain till Thursday," an India Meteorological Department (IMD) official had predicted earlier.
People took to Twitter to share pictures and videos the heavy showers in Delhi-NCR:

Dust storm. Followed by the electricity going off, of course, I mean. Then strong winds. Then rains. & I'm jumping.
May the rain gods show mercy to this city, this country and the world, this year.#Delhi #Monsoon2019 #Monsoon #NewDelhi #India pic.twitter.com/xe7RKPuhs1
