Moderate to heavy rains have been lashing the states of Punjab and Haryana since the last two to three days. These showers remained mostly confined to the northern districts of the states. Amritsar, Ludhiana, Chandigarh, Ambala, and Yamunanagar were the ones to witness these rains. Similarly, light rains have occurred in Rohtak and Hisar.
In the last 24 hours, from 8:30 am on Sunday, Jalandhar has recorded 39 mm of rainfall, followed by Ambala 31.8 mm, Amritsar 31.3 mm, Kapurthala 27.5 mm, Chandigarh 18.1 mm and Patiala 16 mm.
According to Skymet Weather, the intensity of Monsoon rains will increase over many parts of Punjab and Haryana. This time, even the southern districts of these states will experience rains and thundershowers. These typical Monsoon rains are likely during the next 24 hours.
The reason for these rains can be attributed to the Monsoon Trough (running across the foothills of the Himalayas) that has now started to shift southwards. This trough will bring in rains for many parts of Punjab and Haryana including the southern and the central districts during the next few days.
Places like Hisar, Sirsa, Rohtak, Kurukshetra, Bhatinda, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Patiala, Ludhiana, Pathankot, will experience good rain and thundershower activities, during the next 24 hours. Moreover, on and off rainfall activities will continue here for the next two to three days. This spell will also mark the advancement of Monsoon into few more parts of both the states.
Due to these showers, the temperatures will subside, thus making the weather comfortable and pleasant for the residents. Maximums would settle in the lower or mid-30s.
So far, both Punjab and Haryana have remained rain deficient. However, the upcoming spell may help both the states in improving its rain deficiency figures to some extent.
