IMD warns light to moderate rainfall in Delhi today
New Delhi : Delhi is likely to witness moderate to light rainfall starting today, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has said.
An orange alert has been issued for moderate rain in the city on Thursday. Heavy rain is also expected in isolated places.
An orange alert is issued as a warning for extremely bad weather with the potential to disrupt commute with road and drain closures and interrupted power supply.
Strong winds are predicted to sweep the city during the day and the maximum temperature is likely to settle around 34 degrees Celsius, a MeT forecast said.
"Light rain is likely at night. Moderate rain is predicted over the next two days, which means Delhi is likely to witness another record for monsoon precipitation," an IMD official said.
