Pre-monsoon showers expected in Chandigarh after June 28

Pushing mercury amidst the drier weather in the city, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast that the monsoon will begin on June 28 with the arrival of pre-monsoon rains and the next two days.

The IMD has ruled that there will be no rainfall in the city as early as Thursday morning, when the city receives less than 0.1 mm of rainfall.

Commenting on this, IMD Chandigarh Director Manmohan Singh said, “Though we have had good rains in the past, the monsoon system has not reached Chandigarh. Thursday’s rainfall is a local spell due to high humidity and high temperatures.

Previously expected to be around July 1, IMD has revised the normal start of the monsoon for the region to June 26, 2020, after considering the latest data.

The onset of the monsoon is declared when the monsoon system enters the area and it rains continuously for a total of two days.  (HT)

This year, with the pre-monsoon rains expected after June 28, the monsoon is likely to be delayed according to the new start date. IMD officials said they are currently entering Uttar Pradesh.

The onset of the monsoon is declared when the monsoon system enters the area and it rains continuously for a total of two days. The precipitation 72 hours before the onset of the monsoon is known as pre-monsoon rain by IMD.

The daytime temperature rises to 36.7 ° C

Meanwhile, the maximum temperature rose from 34.9 ° C on Wednesday to 36.7 ° C, but still 0.8 degrees below normal.

On the other hand, the minimum temperature dropped from 26.3 ° C on Wednesday to 24.2 ° C on Thursday, 0.6 degrees lower than normal.

Over the next three days, as the city waits for rain, maximum temperatures can rise anywhere between 39 ° C and 40 ° C, while the minimum temperatures are between 25 ° C and 26 ° C.
