Rain is likely in the tricity on Sunday and Monday.

According to the Chandigarh Meteorological Department, the rain spell is likely to be accompanied by thunderstorm, lightning and squall (40-50 kmph) at isolated places. It will bring down daytime temperature.

“Keeping in view the ongoing harvesting of crops in the region, it is suggested necessary arrangements should be made for a safe storage of the produce,” said a Met update.

Meanwhile, Saturday saw the hottest October day in a decade. Today’s maximum temperature was 36.4°C, which is four degrees above normal and the highest in the month of October since 2010 when the same temperature was reported. On October 12, 36.5°C maximum temperature was witnessed, the highest in the past 13 years. The all-time highest maximum temperature record of this month is 37.2°C recorded in 1992.

Due to rain likely tomorrow, the maximum temperature is predicted to fall to around 27°C. For the next few days, daytime temperature is likely to remain on the lower side.
