Waterlogging and heavy traffic jams are some of the significant issues citizens are facing.

Although the rain has provided relief from the scorching heat, visuals of heavy traffic jams and waterlogged streets have emerged from several areas, including Sarita Vihar, Connaught Place, Palam Airport, and Dhaula Kuan.

Last year, Delhi welcomed the monsoon on June 26. In 2022, it will arrive on June 30, and in 2021, on July 13. 

Tomorrow, on Saturday, June 29, 2024, Delhi is expected to have a low and maximum temperature of 32.93 °C and 41.87 °C, respectively. Tomorrow, humidity levels will be 36%.
