Rain brings mercury down in northern India

Several regions in northern India experienced sudden rains and thundershowers on Wednesday morning that knocked down the rising temperatures and abated the heat waves.

New Delhi/Shimala, May 2 : Several regions in northern India experienced sudden rains and thundershowers on Wednesday morning that knocked down the rising temperatures and abated the heat waves.

The metrological department attributed the change in weather to some cyclonic disturbances.

"The reason behind the changes, as we told yesterday is cyclonic circulation over Punjab and Rajasthan are affecting the region. The heat wave conditions are going to abate from the region now. The temperatures, which have been running 5-6 degree above normal are going to fall below normal," said S.C. Bhan, director of the metrological centre in the capital.

Meteorologists, however, maintained the relief was temporary though there will be abatement in the heat wave condition.

The temperature in the capital was hovering over 40 degree Celsius for the past few weeks. But rain lashed several regions in northern India, bringing relief to people.

In Shimla, capital of Himachal Pradesh, people cheered the rains.

"The condition in Shimla is good. There is no hail and the moisture," said Prakash Chandra, a local.

Most of northern India was in the grip of a severe heat wave, with Punjab and Rajasthan recording temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius.
