Thunderstorm Alert: Schools in Delhi, Uttrakhand to Remain Closed Tomorrow

The IMD blamed unpredictable Delhi weather on a lack of clarity about how western disturbance over Jammu and Kashmir and a cyclonic circulation over Haryana would impact weather in the National Capital Region.

"Thunderstorm and dust storm accompanied by high-speed winds are very likely at isolated places in Rajasthan". Tress and electricity poles were uprooted in Dehradun and other areas in Uttarakhand.

Following the IMD warning, the Delhi government chose to close all evening schools tomorrow, and put search and rescue teams on standby.

A severe storm, accompanied by hail and rain, hit Shimla and other parts of Himachal Pradesh, while the higher reaches of the state experienced snowfall.

In Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri, hailstorm preceded by heavy rains hit Thanamandi area in the evening, prompting authorities to launch a massive rescue operation, a senior official said.

The Delhi traffic police has already issued a traffic advisory for people travelling in Delhi and NCR.
