Rain brings relief to region

Chandigarh, June 24
The first pre-monsoon showers, five days ahead of the south-west monsoon, in parts of Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi and Chandigarh today saved the people from torrid humid conditions.

However, 51.6 mm rain threw normal life out of gear in and around Dharamsala. Kasol and Sunder Nagar reported 21.6 mm and 16.3 mm rains, respectively, during the past 24 hours till at 8.30 a.m. today. Sunni (7.00 mm), Pandoh(6.5 mm), Nahan (0.7 mm), Bhuntar(0.4 mm) and Kalpa (0.2 mm) were among other stations which reported rainfall.

Shimla, which reported 1 mm rain, was enveloped by dense fog in the morning. The mercury at the Ridge dipped to 24.5C.

The Meteorological Bureau, here, said that parts of Chandigarh recorded 4.2 mm rain till 2.30 p.m. while some sectors reported drizzle. The temperature at 2.30 p.m. dipped to 29.4C against the normal of 39C.

Delhi was virtually deluged by 31.7 mm rains, shortly before noon today. The maximum hovered around 28C against the normal of 39C.

The Weather Bureau has forecast heavy rains and thunderstorms at many places in Himachal Pradesh and few other places in rest of the region during the next 48 hours.

Meanwhile, the south-west monsoon has advanced up to Varansi and the adjoining areas, it is likely to keep its date of June 29 with Uttaranchal, west Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, north-east Haryana and adjoining areas of Punjab and Delhi.

With monsoon approaching, the north-west region, which suffered heavy loss of human lives and property due to the vageries of weather this year, can expect some relief from the sizzling heat wave.

Srinagar: Incessant rain lashed parts of Jammu and Kashmir bringing down the mercury by 2 degrees.

While Srinagar city received 20.2 mm, Jammu recorded 18.2 mm rain. Awamtipora and Udhampur received 12.4 mm and 10.0 mm rainfall, respectively, a met official said today.

The minimum temperature dipped by 2 degrees and the maximum is also expected to drop if the downpour continues, he said.

The level in the Jhelum had risen significantly and drains were overflowing in Srinagar, disrupting vehicular movement, he said.

The official said that since the state had witnessed a couple of dry seasons, prior to this year, there was no immediate danger of floods. But if the rain continues for another day or two, then there is a possibility, he added. UNI, PTI
