On Wednesday, the maximum temperature recorded was 33.5 degrees, which was five degrees below the normal mark. The humidity index on Wednesday, however, ranged between 42 per cent and 87 per cent. No major change in the maximum temperature is expected for the next three days in the city.

There is, however, a prediction of thunderstorm accompanied by squall at isolated places in the region.

“There is also a possibility of rainfall in the city on June 20 and 21, which will only lead to a further fall in the day temperature,” officials from the Met Department added.

Commenting on the ongoing untimely thunder and lightning followed by light rainfall, Director of the Chandigarh Met Department, Surinder Paul, said, “The prevailing pleasant conditions are due to the western disturbances originating in the western parts of Afghanistan and the upper air cyclonic circulation in North Haryana.” The monsoon, however, is expected to reach the city by the last week of June.

“There might be a deviation of three to five days, but monsoon will arrive around the end of June only,” Paul added.
