Press Trust of India  |  Dehradun 

Heavy rains lashed several parts of Uttarkhand today bringing much needed relief to people from days of muggy weather. Dehradun received 60 mm of rains accompanied by winds which led toa drop of one degree in the temperature, office Director Vikram Singh said. Most places in Nainital, Chamoli, Rudraprayag and Pithoragarh districts also received showers and the weather got pleasant, he said. Predicting similar weather in over the next three days, he said the maximum temperature could see a drop of two-four degrees below season's normal if rains continued. Around half an hour of heavy showers in Dehradun affected power supply in several parts of the city for hours. Karanpur, Dalanwala, Nehru colony and Raipur areas suffered power outages for nearly five hours.
