New Delhi: Heavy rain lashed the national capital for the second consecutive day, bringing back cases of water logging, as well as traffic problems in many parts of the city.

The rainfall today may even beat yesterday's record. As per the Palam MeT office, the rainfall recorded yesterday was the highest recorded in a span of three hours since 1959. With 117 mm recorded within an hour, the MeT termed it one of the heaviest and "unprecedented" downpour of this season.

According to the weather report yesterday, the minimum was recorded at 25.6 degree Celsius, one degree above normal, down from 27.2 degrees on Wednesday. The maximum was recorded at 36.2 degree Celsius, two degrees above normal.

The return of rains to the city after a gap of six days, when the city recorded 96.1 mm of showers between 4 am and 5:30 pm that day, also brought back water-logging and resulting traffic problems to the city.
The rain had also led to water-logging on the arrival side of the IGI Airport, which led the airport operator to arrange the delivery of their baggage on the conveyor belts at the international side as a precautionary measure, a Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) spokesperson said.
