The forecast by the Punjab Agricultural Uinversity (PAU) states that the weather is expected to remain cloudy with the possibility of thundershower over Ludhiana and its adjoining areas during the next 24 hours.

Kulwinder Singh, a farmer from Lopon village, said he was relieved that it did not rain in Ludhiana today. “I will be harvesting my crop next week and hopefully the weather will remain clear,” he said.
