People of Delhi take the bad weather with a side of tea, it is usual for the city and be it rain, heat or cold, the city has witnessed all the extremes. Yet, this winter season has been particularly dreary for the people of Delhi who have had to deal with record low temperatures. Though the past couple of days brought with them a bout of pleasant weather, Delhi is likely set to brave bad weather once again.

The Indian Meteorological Department has predicted a thunderstorm accompanied by a hailstorm and has issued an orange alert for Delhi and the nearby areas.

What's the update?

Hailstorm that hit NCR last year

If you woke up to drizzling/light showers in the national capital this morning (Wednesday) and thought to yourself that the weather would be somewhat irksome, you couldn't be more wrong. The weather conditions in the national capital are set to take a turn for the worst, with thunder and hail storm predicted later in the day.

While the light showers themselves caused a bit of ruckus in the city, clogging roads and disrupting traffic, the expected thunderstorm will surely make it difficult for you to commute in the city.

Commuters in Delhi to be thunder-'stuck'

The bad weather in Delhi and the adjoining areas of Gurugram and Noida has already created a bunch of issues including water logging and traffic jams in several areas. The Delhi Traffic Police was quick to update the citizens of the issue, informing us of the areas to avoid.

Though the weather was not the only thing that has brought traffic in Delhi on a standstill. Demonstrations and protests across the national capital have also become a major reason for the traffic woes of the commuters in the city.
