Parts of South, Central and North Delhi saw rainfall on Wednesday evening, along with parts of Ghaziabad, Noida, and Faridabad. The rainfall is on account of a western disturbance as a cyclonic circulation that lies over Afghanistan.

With rainfall, the maximum temperature is set to fall from the 33.6 degrees Celsius recorded on Wednesday to around 28 degrees Celsius on Friday.
