Thunderstorm alert LIVE UPDATES: A dust storm with a wind speed of up to 70kmph had hit Delhi Tuesday night followed by a squall. Following this, all evening schools run by the Delhi government and a few private morning schools remained closed on Wednesday. The weather department has forecast another round of heavy rain and thunderstorm tonight.

However, K Sathi Devi, head of IMD’s National weather Forecasting Centre, said the severe weather phenomenon over northwest India is likely to subside as the influence of two western disturbances – which led to the erratic weather – is weakening.
