Driest-ever July as monsoon betrays

Chandigarh, July 29
With south-west monsoon continuing to betray most of the plains in the northwest region, the current month of July turned out to be the driest-ever.

However, Ludhiana and its surrounding areas had 27.8 mm of rain, as several places in Himachal Pradesh reported widespread rain during the past 24 hours.

The city and its surrounding areas of Punjab and Haryana, which normally get 262.2 mm of rain in the month of July, had only 71 mm of rain this year.

There was altogether 170.5 mm of rainlfall against the normal of 394.6 mm.

According to weather pundits here, chances of rain in the next 48 hours are very bleak in the two states.

An upper air cyclonic circulation over central Pakistan and adjoining Punjab is likely to cause light to moderate rain in HP and at isolated places in rest of the region over the next 48 hours.

Weathermen here attributed dry weather conditions in the north to the monsoon through shifting across the foothills of Himalayas. This had been causing widespread rain in the north eastern states.

Meanwhile, day temperatures shot appreciably above normal today with Hisar in Haryana and Delhi turning out to be the hottest places with 42C and 39.4C, respectively, unusual for the month of July.

Chandigarh and surrounding areas had the mercury rising to 37.2C, four degrees above normal while it was up by three degrees at Ambala(37.3C) and Patiala (36.7C). Amritsar reported the maximum of 37C, two degrees above normal while Ludhiana had the normal of 35.3C.

Shimla reported fresh 0.6 mm rain during the day and the high of 24.6C, two degrees above normal. Bhuntar and Sundar Nagar were hotter at 33.5C and 34.2C, respectively. UNI
