In last 24 hours, light to moderate rain and thundershower activities with few heavy spells lashed most parts of Northwest India including the state of Punjab. Hailstorm activity was also observed over Ludhiana and its neighbouring districts.

According to Skymet Weather, Hoshiarpur in the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Wednesday recorded heavy rain to the tune of 81 mm, followed by Amritsar 10.4 mm, Anandpur Sahib 13.9 mm, Chandigarh 5.6 mm, Jalandhar 2 mm, Ludhiana 6.4 mm and Patiala 4 mm.

These rains have been attributed to the active Western Disturbance over northern parts of Jammu and Kashmir and its induced cyclonic circulation over parts of Haryana.

In wake of the weather activity, temperatures have dropped over most parts of Punjab. The lowest minimum temperature reported in the state during the last 24 hours from 8.30 am was of Gurdaspur i.e. 6.1˚C.

Now during the next 24 hours, we expect heavy rain and thundershowers at isolated places of over Punjab and its adjoining areas. In fact, thunderstorm accompanied with hailstorm and gusty winds may also occur over isolated places in the state which may cause damage to crops in the region, particularly wheat.

Thereafter, from February 8, weather over the state will start clearing up, but due to the commencement of icy cold winds from northern hills, minimums will continue to drop leading to chilly conditions over most parts of the state.
