Rain brings relief to plains

Chandigarh, June 18
Temperatures at many places in Punjab and Haryana stayed a few degrees below normal today after rains lashed many areas in the region during the past 48 hours.

In Punjab, Ludhiana was down 6C below normal at a high of 34.8C. Patiala was also down by 6C at 34.3C while Amritsar recorded a maximum of 35.4C, down 5C, the Met Office here has said.

Chandigarh had a high of 36.8C, down 2C and Ambala was down 4C at a high of 35.6C.

Saying that the recent spell of rains which lashed the region were not pre-monsoon showers, Director of the Meteorological Department S.C. Bhan said that widespread rain had been caused due to an upper air cyclonic circulation over Punjab and adjoining central Pakistan.

Another weather system was active over south-west Jammu and Kashmir and the neighbourhood, he said.

Meanwhile, the Met Office has predicted light to moderate rain at few places in Punjab and Haryana and thunder squalls at isolated places in the region during the next 24 hours. PTI
