Indore: Rains lashed the city for the third consecutive day on Thursday. City recorded 9.4 mm rainfall throughout the day with which the total rainfall of the season reached 186.3 mm (7.33 inches) so far.
Regional Meteorological Department said that the condition will remain for the next couple of days.
Rains which started on Tuesday night continued to lash the city on Thursday intermittently. Citizens woke up to dark clouds and rains on Thursday morning and could not see the sunshine throughout the day.
The drop in day temperature coupled with rains also forced people with weak immunity to wear warm clothes with the raincoats. “Monsoon is active across the state and the conditions will remain same for next couple of days,” met officials said.
Maximum temperature on Thursday was recorded at 25.6 degrees Celsius while minimum temperature was recorded at 22.4 degrees Celsius which were 6 degrees and 1 degree below the normal, respectively.
Rains also brought smiles on the faces of residents but water-logging and traffic jams at various places posed problems for the commuters. However, with the weather turning pleasant gave reason to citizens to go on long drive in evening. A large number of people could be seen thronging at corn stalls across the city.
