Heavy rain disrupted flight operations at the Delhi airport on Saturday with at least 14 flights diverted, an official said. The flights have been diverted from Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport to Lucknow, Amritsar, Ahmedabad and Jaipur due to the bad weather in the national capital.
On Saturday, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said the recent satellite images and Delhi, Patiala, and Jaipur radars have shown convective clouds in north India resulting in thunderstorm and rain.
“These convective clouds are over Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, parts of Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and NCR and adjoining areas,” the IMD tweeted. “These areas likely to get thunderstorm and precipitation as per forecast,” the IMD said.
