 After waiting for two and a half to three months, there is the hope of rain. This time the first rain of the cold season is expected today. According to the Meteorological Department, a western disturbance is active near Jammu and Kashmir, which will give snowfall in the mountainous areas and rain in the plains. This will cause a tremendous fall in daytime temperatures and there will be a significant cold knock in the plains.

Daytime temperatures can reach around 24 to 25 degrees. At this time the day temperature is being recorded higher than normal. On Friday, the maximum temperature was recorded at 28 degrees Celsius, one degree above normal, while the minimum temperature was 11 degrees Celsius. It is also expected to reduce pollution by rain.


There was no rain in North India for a long time. Chandigarh received rains in the first week of September. It has been dry since then. The Western Disturbance occurred three to four times after the departure of the monsoon, but due to the weakening, the high altitude area received only snowfall.

On November 15, light to moderate rains is expected in many areas of Punjab and Haryana including Chandigarh. The weather will begin to clear from 16 November.
