Last sunday, Chandigarh recorded 45º Celsius, the highest ever since 2012. Chandigarh was even hotter than Jaipur that day. The pleasant spell of rainfall during weekdays brought much-needed respite from scorching heat bringing mercury down by 8-10º.
But, the Met department has now predicted a rise in day and night temperatures. The temperature is likely to go up in the next two days. On Saturday, the day temperature was recorded at 36.6 Degree Celsius (3 degrees below normal) and the night temperature was recorded at 24.4 Degree Celsius (1 degree below normal).
A weather department official has said, “The western disturbance which is currently active over the region will start receding from Sunday and the maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to go up by three degrees in the next few days. After 15 June, there are chances of rainfall.”
According to a statement released by the department, light to moderate rain or thundershowers are likely at isolated places in Punjab during the next 60 hours and at isolated places in Haryana in the next 38 hours.
