Intense thunderstorm, rain predicted across several States

A dust storm, with a wind speed of 70 kilometres per hour, had hit the national capital last night followed by a squall, bringing down the temperature after a hot day.

All evening schools run by Delhi government and few private schools operating in morning shift remained closed on Tuesday. Trees were uprooted in parts of Delhi.

The Delhi Metro and the traffic police also issued advisories for people on Monday, informing what precautions need to be taken, with the Metro saying trains may be stopped if the wind speed exceeds 90 km/hour.

The Uttar Pradesh government has asked its officials to take precautionary measures in view of the warning for eastern and western districts of the state.

The revenue department has issued directions to all district officers and said water and power utilities would also keep restoration teams ready.

Thunderstorm accompanied with gusty winds very likely hit at isolated places over Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Bihar, West Madhya Pradesh, East Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Coastal, South Interior Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. However, in case the wind speed is higher than 90 kilometers per hour, services may be hit. The advisory said that commuters should "keep themselves updated about weather conditions and plan their journey accordingly".

Higher reaches in Himachal Pradesh received snowfall, while Shimla experienced a heavy hailstorm on Tuesday.

The severe and erratic weather conditions have been attributed to a western disturbance.

A western disturbance, a system of low pressure bringing moisture from Eurasian water bodies, now lies over Jammu and Kashmir. "These systems would trigger rain and thunderstorms across north India and Delhi-NCR", another Met official told the daily.

It was a far cry from the warning of squalls and thunderstorms in 13 states that IMD issued over the weekend, prompting schools in several states to remain closed on May 6 and 7. Six flights landing in Delhi and one flight which was to depart were delayed due to the storm.
