Overnight rains in several parts of the capital city resulted in waterlogging and traffic snarls on Sunday morning.

Waterlogging was reported from the usual areas like Pragati Maidan, ITO, Kashmiri Gate and Minto Bridge and others in the city, so were traffic snarls. The traffic movement was delayed for a while.

The MeT department has forecast generally cloudy sky with light rain later in the day.
