While parts of Delhi-NCR woke up to another spell of rain Tuesday morning, an India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast issued a little after 9 am said that thunderstorm with light to moderate intensity rainfall is likely over Delhi and NCR, including Ghaziabad, Noida, Gurgaon and Faridabad, over the next two hours.

The IMD forecast indicates that Delhi is likely to receive ‘moderate’ rainfall Tuesday. The maximum temperature is likely to settle at around 35 degrees Celsius, a little below the 36.9 degrees recorded on Monday.
