The weather is expected to remain hot and dry with possibility of heatwaves over Ludhiana during next 24 hours.

“As soon as the temperature reaches 40°C, it becomes impossible to bear the heat. It has become difficult to venture out due to extreme heat of the Sun. Everyone should stay hydrated and drink lots of water,” said Anamika, a city resident from Gurdev Nagar.

Another city resident further added that since the temperature has started increasing again, he is eating more fruits and less of grains. “My meals generally include fresh fruits and salad and lot of drinks like buttermilk and fresh juices,” said Param, who works at a private bank.
