It said the state will experience thunderstorm accompanied by gusty winds as well as light to medium showers till April 9. South and central districts are expected to receive showers on March 10 too.

Meanwhile, the rainfall brought people a respite from the summer heat. Many districts witnessed a drop in temperature.
