Jalandhar, June 10

A sudden thunder, lightening and hailstorm that lashed the city on Thursday evening brought a major respite for the city residents who had been feeling very uneasy owing to the soaring mercury for the past almost four days.

The maximum temperature recorded since Monday was between 42°C to 44°C with humidity levels also rising. Even the evenings and nights had remained very uncomfortable. Many residents, who had been avoiding the use of air-conditioners and refrigerated water since the onset of summers owing to coronavirus scare, could no longer resist their use.

But with the weather taking a complete U-turn this evening past 6:30 pm with a dust storm, followed by loud sounds of thunder and then rain accompanied by hail, the temperature dropped by more than 12 degrees. The stormy weather prevailed for more than an hour, which most residents enjoyed by sitting out in verandahs.

According to the weather forecast, the rainy weather will prevail in the region for the next five-six days with maximum temperature dropping to 34°C.
