Rain in the afternoon slowed down traffic on key roads, particularly in and around K.H. Road on Thursday, thanks to flooded roads.

Traffic moved at a snail's pace in several areas of south Bangalore. A commuter, who was stuck on his two-wheeler for 40 minutes on the stretch from Urvashi cinema to K.H. Road, blamed potholes for slowing down vehicles.

For Friday, the department forecasts cloudy skies. Some parts of the city is likely to receive intermittent rain and thundershowers.
