IMD: This May was the coolest in 36 years for Delhi

rains in Delhi

Due to excessive rains, May in Delhi was the coolest in 36 years, with the average maximum temperature falling to 36.8 degrees Celsius.

Local resident Bhushan Narula says, “This is due to climate change. I have never seen this type of weather before. Now we are wondering will it rain in July and August.”

On Tuesday evening, the nation’s capital was slammed by a strong thunderstorm with winds of up to 80 km/h and heavy rain, which disrupted traffic and forced numerous planes to divert.

This is the first time in my life that I have experienced this kind of weather in May, and local resident Baljit Singh attributes it to global warming.

“Climate change and global warming are to blame for all of these changes. According to Charulata, another local, “Trees are being cut down, pollution has increased, and all these changes are a result of that.”
