Delhi weather took a turn for the better on Monday afternoon as high-speed winds lashed the national capital at around 3 pm. The sky had turned cloudy earlier, bringing down temperatures 33 degrees Celsius.

The high speed wind picked up dust particles and was a dry storm. It continued for about 30 minutes and went on till early evening, by which time thunderous rain clouds had started roaring, bringing about a light drizzle in some parts of the city accompanied by lightening.

After the scorching heat of the morning, the weather came as a welcome change. The city had been reeling under an intense wave since the past few days with temperatures soaring up to 45 degrees Celsius.

The weather department had earlier predicted that the coming few days might bring some respite from the heat but the kinds of winds experienced on Monday afternoon were unprecedented.
