The city witnessed 35.2 mm of rains between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm, Met department said.

Rains also brought with it the problem of traffic snarls as heavy showers reduced visibility and caused water-logging on major roads and intersections.

Traffic slowed down considerably on major arterial roads around Saket, Sangam Vihar, Lajpat Nagar and Chirag Dilli.

"Rains lashed almost all parts of the national capital. Heavy rains were witnessed in Noida and adjoining areas," the Met Official said.
