Amritsar, March 1

The city witnessed light showers early in the morning today. There was forecast of heavy rain and thunderstorms, however, the city and its surrounding areas did not experience it. The day started with light rain and a cloud cover developing over the region. This significantly lowered the day temperature and will also impact the night temperature. The weather conditions though were pleasant in the afternoon.

The weathermen claimed that western disturbance led to showers in isolated places and there are chances of good rain and thunderstorm in the next 24 hours. The day temperature recorded an increase in the second half of February and residents were expecting a shorter winter this time. However, the recent rain would help the farmers as wheat, vegetable and oil seed crops require a good shower.

“Showers are good for crops as some varieties, especially vegetables, witnessed mite attack. The city saw a little dip after the rain and is expected to help the wheat crop flourish. Prolonged winters always give a bumper wheat crop. Crops such as mustard witnessed an attack of mite in some areas. It would help wash away the mite,” said a farmer from Manawala.
