Hailstorms and rain in sections of Delhi have brought much-needed relief from the national capital's searing heat. Isolated areas have reported drizzling and high gusts, which has lowered the temperature and left a cold breeze behind. At around 2 p.m., residents in Rohini, Pitampura, and Paschim Vihar reported hailstorms, as well as rain and strong winds. A few hours later, the same thing happened in South Delhi. As rains pelted the dry and dusty roadways, many residents flocked to social media to post photos and videos. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) had published a yellow alert earlier in the morning, warning of a dust storm, thunderstorm, or hail storm in the national capital with winds gusting up to 50 km per hour. The alert was then changed to the orange category.
