With the city sizzling at 42.2 degree Celsius on Friday, the meteorological department of Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) said the temperature will continue to rise for a few more days in the presence of sunshine.
Head of the department of school of climate change and agricultural meteorology, Prabhjyot Kaur, said the rising temperature will be helpful in pushing forward monsoon current towards the northern region. “The rising temperature will create a low pressure that will help in advancing the monsoon towards the northern region of the country. We had witnessed pleasant weather during the beginning of the month, but that does not help the monsoon in moving forward,” she said.
