Just like Haryana, moderate to heavy rains have been lashing the adjoining state of Punjab as well since yesterday evening. These rains were accompanied by hailstorm activities, as reported in the southern districts during the last 24 hours.
These activities were a result of the Western Disturbance over the Western Himalayas along with its induced Cyclonic Circulation over North Rajasthan and adjoining Haryana. Both the systems are likely to persist for another 24 hours and bring more rain to the region.
According to our weather experts, the presence of thunderclouds is indicating more rain in Punjab today. On and off showers are likely to continue throughout the day in Amritsar, Bathinda, Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar, Kapurthala, Ludhiana and Patiala. Hailstorm activities could also be seen in some parts.
By tomorrow, the Western Disturbance will move away, thus resuming the flow of cold northerly winds from the snow-clad mountains of the Himalayas. As a result, the temperatures would drop significantly and minimums may touch lower degrees. Moderate to dense fog would engulf the state post this episode.
