Chances of light rain in Chandigarh

Chandigarh Chances of light rain in the city will continue as the Western Disturbance (WD) affecting the region will start to lose its effect on Wednesday. As per India Meteorological Department, chances of light rain will continue on Wednesday and Thursday, but the monsoon system is likely to again pick up around Friday.

As per IMD officials, the Western Disturbance has affected the hilly reaches more than the plains, which is why there hasn’t been rain in Chandigarh for the past couple of days. Further, the system is much weaker than last week, which had led to the record rainfall in the city combined with the monsoon system.

The maximum temperature went down from 34.8°C on Monday to 32.8°C on Tuesday due to cloudy weather for most of the day. Minimum temperature rose from 28.3°C on Monday to 28.6°C on Tuesday.

In the next three days, while maximum temperature will remain between 33°C and 34°C, minimum temperature will remain between 26°C and 27°C.
