Northern India was severely affected by the loo and scorching summer for the past few days, but the rainfall which took place in Delhi yesterday brought much-needed relief. While Rajasthan recently recorded a maximum temperature of 43 degrees celsius, which was the hottest in north India, followed by Gurugram.
Palam area of Delhi measured rainfall of 26 mm yesterday, while Alwar in Rajasthan measured rainfall of around 27 mm.

The IMD has forecasted a few rain in some of the regions of Delhi, while the clouds will cover the sky on Saturday. While for the next few days, the temperature in the national capital Delhi will remain above 40 degrees celsius.
It must be noted that the recent rainfall witnessed in Delhi, Noida, and regions of NCR brought down the maximum temperature by 2 degrees.
