Days after evenings in the city became colder than Shimla, temperature in the city rose almost four-five degrees on Saturday to 13°C from the intervening night of Friday and Saturday.
The maximum temperature recorded during the day was 29.3°C.
Chandigarh Meteorological Centre attributed the sudden rise in temperature to the partly cloudy sky on Saturday.
“It is natural for clouds to reflect thermal radiation from earth’s surface, which leads to increase in temperature,” said Chandigarh meteorological centre Surender Paul.
The meteorological department said these weather conditions were likely to prevail over the next three days, with the maximum temperature settling at 28°C and minimum at 12°C.
The sky, however, will be clear, with the possibility of mist or haz e occur ring in the morning.
The department said fog was expected to occur from December onwards, hitting normal pace of life.
