Delhi rains have made an appearance once again and boy, residents are confused. You’d like to know what the confusion is all about, well, rain in Delhi has made people think as to whether it is a sweater weather or a raincoat weather for starters.
Not only this, Delhi woke up to a series of heavy rains and hailstorms thinking it was still about 4-5 am only to find out after checking their phones and clocks that it was 8:00 am in the morning. Yes, it was as dark as that, even at 9:00 am, it looked like late in the night and it was nothing short of an apocalypse. Let us see what Twitter had to see regarding the apocalyptic Delhi Rains this morning:

Um, pouring rain, midnight darkness, thunder and lightning. It's apocalyptic weather in Delhi today morning, unlike anything I've seen in the past years.://

The one good thing that came out with this was drop in pollution levels as rains in Delhi have washed away the pollutants giving Delhiites a reason to breathe freely. Other parts of North India, particularly Punjab and Haryana have also seen some heavy rains. Not only this, the desert state of Rajasthan was also lashed with heavy showers.
While it did sound an excuse to bunk work/school, traffic chaos has been on its peak including trains and air traffic. Heavy congestion was reported in several parts of the national capital and its adjoining areas of Gurugram, Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.
Along with this, at least 15 trains coming towards Delhi have been delayed as per reports. With this, days are expected to get colder and more layers are expected to come out as rainfall in Delhi is expected to continue today as well.
