The state of Punjab has received fairly widespread rain and thundershower activities with few extremely heavy rain spells during the last 48 hours. In fact, few cities even recorded extremely heavy three-digit rain like Pathankot recorded 243 mm of rain, followed by Kapurthala 227 mm, Amritsar 203 mm and Jalandhar 135 mm.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Patiala recorded 69 mm of rain, followed by Chandigarh 35 mm, Bathinda 30 mm, Anandpur Sahib 18.6 mm, Ferozepur 16 mm and Ludhiana 18 mm.

Due to these heavy rains, rain deficiency over Punjab has come down and now stands at 6%. We expect it to further reduce even more by tomorrow.

At present a well-marked low-pressure area is seen persisting over southern parts of Haryana and adjoining Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. It will recurve in north/northwest direction and weaken gradually.

However, it will continue to give moderate spells of rain with one or two very heavy spells over northern and eastern parts of the state for another 24 hours.

Places like Rupnagar, Chandigarh, Nawanshahr, Hoshiarpur, Ludhiana and Patiala may receive heavy rainfall activity.

By September 26, the Western Disturbance will move away, and the well-marked low-pressure area will also fade. Therefore, we will see significant reduction of rainfall activity over these states. However, isolated roans may still continue for the next one or two days.
