Known to usher in harsh weather, June this year has brought along sporadic rain that has caused the mercury to fall by several notches across the state.
Sizzling at over 40° C a few days ago, Una got maximum relief from the rain which brought down the day temperature to 31° C.
Similarly, Shimla also witnessed a dip in the maximum temperature from 28° C to 21° C in the span of past six days.
Shimla meteorological centre director Manmohan Singh said more rain was likely in the next few days and temperature would remain unchanged at most places. "Rain has brought down the maximum temperature by 2 to 3 notches in the past 24 hours," he said, adding that the state would receive more rain till June 9 due to western disturbance.
Other areas where temperature saw a dip included Nahan at 29.3° C, Sundernagar at 28.8° C, Dharamsala at 26.8° C, Bhuntar near Kullu at 25.5° C and Kalpa at 18.6° C.
