Written by: Staff

New Delhi, May 15 (UNI) A squall with winds of speed 74 km per hour swept through Delhi late last night, providing temporary relief to people from the searing summer heat.

The maximum temperature fell by four degrees celcius last night because of the weather phenomenon, but rose again today and hovered around 40 degree celcius, the met office said.

There was no disruption in flight services because of the squall, an Airport spokesman said.

The city recorded 20.8 mm rainfall during the period.

The met office said the squall was the result of an upper air cyclonic circulation over Northern Rajasthan adjoining Punjab and central Pakistan.
