Widespread rain brings relief 

Chandigarh, May 15
Light to moderate rain in Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir and isolated rain in Punjab and Haryana during the past 24 hours provided the much-needed relief to the people at many places in the northwest region from the gruelling heat wave conditions.

However, Hisar in Haryana recorded a high of 43.2C, two degrees above normal, even after receiving light rain.

Weathermen here attributed the sudden change in the weather to the upper air cyclonic circulation over Punjab and the neighbourhood, 2.1 km above sea level. The system, they said could cause light to moderate rain or thundershower at a few places in Himachal and dust and thunderstorm at a few places in Punjab and Haryana over the next 48 hours.

The mercury in and around Amritsar and Srinagar, which had risen by seven and 10 degrees above normal, today plumetted to 37C, a degree below normal, and 27C, three degrees above normal, respectively.

A 10 mm of rainfall in and around Shimla preceded by high velocity winds plumetted the mercury to 14.6C today from yesterdays high of 27C.

The tribal belt of Kinnaur and adjoining areas of Jammu and Kashmir and the catchment area of the Bhakra-Beas Management Board reported 2-68.1 mm of rainfall. Guler with 68.1 mm of rainfall was the wettest followed by Nagrota Surian (33 mm), Gamrur and Nadaun (22 mm each) and Pandoh (20.5 mm). UNITop
