Chances for light to moderate rain up to 30 mm will continue in the coming days as well, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

With the fresh spell, the level of Sukhna Lake has also gone up to 1162.3 feet, close to the danger mark of 1163 feet, when its floodgates are required to be opened to release the excess water. Waterlogging was also reported in some parts of the city.

“Scattered rains are taking place in the region and it is hard to predict on which particular days it will rain in Chandigarh. A warning for rain has been given for the next few days, though intermittent rains are expected,” said an IMD official.

Meanwhile, maximum temperature in the city went up from Saturday’s 34°C to 34.7°C. Minimum temperature went up from 26.6°C to 27.4°C. In the next three days, maximum temperature will remain between 35°C and 36°C while minimum temperature will remain around 27°C.
