With 93 mm, Hisar receives record breaking rainfall

June 14, 2016 2:05 PM |


Hisar, district of Haryana state, recorded highest single day rainfall in last 24 hours. The 'City of Steel' recorded 93 mm of rain which broke its ten-year-old rainfall record.

Highest single day rainfall recorded during 2015 was 48 mm which is almost half the amount of rain recorded this year. The amount of rainfall recorded during 2014 was even lesser. Hisar has surpassed its average monthly rainfall for the month of June of 42.9 mm by almost double which it recorded in a single day on June 13. Moreover, weather forecast for the next 3 days in Hisar is partly cloudy sky with possibility of rain or thunderstorm.

The reasons for these heavy showers in Hisar can be attributed to a cyclonic circulation prevailing over North Rajasthan, Punjab and adjoining Haryana and a trough over these regions. Also, the moisture inclusion from the south-westerly winds from the Arabian Sea over these regions is also the main reason for this record breaking rainy spell.
