The minimum temperature, 32.7°C, was more than the previous day. Both the maximum and the minimum temperatures were recorded three degrees above normal.
This morning's showers brought some relief from the humid weather observed over the past two months. However, despite claims of being monsoon-ready from the authorities, the 32 mm of rainfall left several areas in the city waterlogged.
Interestingly, the minimum temperature, 32.7°C, went up by 4 degrees despite the rains. Both the maximum and the minimum temperatures were recorded three degrees above normal.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast more rain and thunderstorm this week. An IMD official said the region would now experience a "quality monsoon".
Despite the authorities' assurances of being prepared for the monsoons, heavy downpour disrupted traffic across the city. Several roads inside sectors and major intersections, such as HUDA City Centre, Signature Tower, Sector 31 Road, Jharsa Chowk, Hero Honda Chowk and Iffco Chowk, suffered waterlogging.
Meanwhile, doctors at the Civil Hospital have advised people to take precautions against diseases such as dengue, malaria and chikungunya. At present, there are 5 confirmed cases of dengue, 10 of malaria, 8 of swine flu and 15 of chikungunya in Gurgaon.
