Unseasonal rain in Delhi- NCR as Cyclone Tauktae weakens

Unseasonal rain in Delhi- NCR as Cyclone Tauktae weakens

New Delhi: Several parts of North India including Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) witnessed moderate rainfall as Cyclone Tauktae weakens further on Wednesday.

Thundershower with gusty winds with heavy showers was seen at some places of Uttar Pradesh's Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Gurugram, Baghpat and other NCR regions, as well as all districts of Delhi.

National Weather Forecasting Centre of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast heavy to very heavy rainfall at isolated places over Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and Chandigarh, and heavy rainfall at isolated places over Punjab, East Uttar Pradesh, north Madhya Pradesh and West Rajasthan in the next 24 hours.

As per the IMD, the sudden weather change is due to the deep depression (remnant of the extremely severe cyclonic storm "Tauktae") that ravaged coasts of Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra Diu and Gujarat earlier.

Tauktae is heading north-eastwards with a speed of about 7 kmph during the past six hours -- nothing compared to over 210 kmph when it hit Porbandar on Monday.

While the rainfall activity in and around the national capital on Wednesday is likely to be intense, on Thursday as per the IMD forecast, there is only a possibility of drizzle in some parts.

The cyclone weakened into a depression and lay centred at 5.30 a.m. on Wednesday near latitude 24.3 degrees north and longitude 73.3 degrees east over south Rajasthan and adjoining Gujarat region, about 60 km west-southwest of Udaipur (Rajasthan) and 110 km east-northeast of Deesa (Gujarat region).

Cyclone Tauktae is very likely to move north-eastwards and weaken gradually into a well-marked low-pressure area in the next 12 hours (till 5.30 a.m. Thursday), warns reports.
