Heavy rain lashed several parts of Indian capital city New Delhi on Tuesday, bringing down temperature by a few degrees, Xinhua news agency quoted officials as saying.
The rains hit city and outskirts during early hours, triggering uprooting of trees, power cuts and waterlogging at several places.
"This morning, heavy rain and lightning were reported in and around Delhi," a meteorological department official said.
"The rains, accompanied by thunderstorm led to uprooting of trees and resulted in waterlogging at many neighbourhoods."
Delhi police took to twitter posting messages on waterlogged areas asking people to avoid the stretches.
Monsoon hit Delhi on June 28, and since then the capital has been receiving light to moderate rain.
Meanwhile, the meteorological department has predicted heavy rain at several places across India and cautioned fishermen against venturing out into the sea, in the wake of rough to very rough conditions that are likely to prevail over the West Central Arabian sea.
