New Delhi: The national capital and adjoining areas received heavy rain on Friday with water-logging reported from several areas.
Showers began since noon and kept up its intensity well into the early evening hours. As expected, traffic took a hit due to flooded roads with snarls reported from several parts of the city. Even as many commuters on two-wheelers opted to halt and take cover under flyovers and footbridges, buses, three-wheelers and cars jostled for space.

The Met department has predicted rain to continue for most parts of the day and could spill over into the weekend as well. While the mercury will remain in the early 30s, a rise in humidity is likely to cause discomfort.
