Delhi and its surrounding areas witnessed a thunderstorm and heavy rain yesterday, which brought some respite from the heat wave that has been sweeping north India and other parts of the country. The temperature has dropped to 33 degrees Celsius. The average temperature last week has been above 40 degrees Celsius. The minimum temperature was recorded at 30 degrees Celsius early this morning, four notches above normal. 
Due to massive dust storm and rain, more than 20 flights to Delhi were diverted and many were

delayed yesterday. Most of the flight diversions and delays occurred between 3 to 7 pm. The storm uprooted trees and damaged sign posts across the city. In Noida, it brought down a huge unipole, that killed one person and injured another. 
The met office said, weather will remain pleasant for the next two days. It forecast partly cloudy sky with possibility of rain or thunderstorm or dust storm today in Delhi and its adjoining areas. The maximum temperature is likely to hover around 38 degrees Celsius.
