Pre-monsoon showers

Chandigarh, June 27
Heavy rain lashed most parts of North India today, affecting rail and road traffic at some places, but the Meteorological Department said the monsoon was yet to hit the region, though it was knocking at the door.

Today the south-west monsoon further advanced into the Saurashtra and Kutch areas and some parts of eastern Uttar Pradesh. Conditions are favourable for its further advancement into the remaining parts of Uttar Pradesh, a senior met official said.

Meanwhile, heavy rain caused by a western disturbance lashed the region. The Kalka-Chandigarh-Delhi Shatabdi reached its destination two hours behind schedule as heavy rain lashed Sonepat and Delhi. Vehicular traffic also got disrupted due to heavy rain on many roads in the region.

Nilokheri was the wettest place in Haryana after receiving 45.4 mm of rain. Ambala, Kurukshetra and Karnal had light rain while Panipat and Sonepat were lashed by heavy rain and many areas in these two towns remained water-logged.

In Punjab, Amritsar was lashed by heavy rain. Ludhiana (24 mm), Nangal (35.2 mm), Balachaur (38.2 mm) and Patiala were lashed by rain.

Jammu also received a heavy downpour after a long dry spell, giving much relief to the people from the heat wave.

Most parts of Himachal Pradesh also received heavy rain. The places to receive rain included Shimla (33.8 mm), Sundernagar (25.6 mm), Pandoh (14.5 mm), Rampur (17.6 mm), Sunni (16 mm), Kahu (4 mm), Sujanpur Tihra (12.9 mm), Nadaun (17.5 mm), Guler (28.5 mm), Nagrota Surian (26 mm), Gamrur (18 mm), Dhundi (24 mm), Solang (12.8 mm) and Manali (14.2 mm).

The met office said a western disturbance lied over northern Pakistan, adjoining Jammu and Kashmir, while another induced upper air cyclonic circulation was over north Rajasthan and adjoining parts of Haryana. PTI
