In the 90 minutes between 6pm and 7.30pm, the city recorded 45.6mm rain, which was third highest this monsoon season, as per the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

While the temperature was around 33°C at 5.30pm, the showers caused it to drop to around 24°C.

Chances of rain will continue from Friday onwards, but the intensity is likely to be lower.

Chandigarh had recorded the heaviest spell of monsoon rain (55.4mm) on August 4, while the second-highest was 47.2mm on June 12, considered part of pre-monsoon showers.

Thursday’s rain also surpassed 14mm, the highest precipitation recorded in September last year on the fourth.

IMD Chandigarh director Manmohan Singh said, “The heavy rain came about due to a Western Disturbance combining with the monsoon system. It was highest in the southern parts of Haryana. Chances of light rain will continue in the coming days and another heavy spell like this can be expected around September 19.”

Monsoon still 31% deficient

Since the onsent of monsoon in June this year, there has been 551mm rain, against a normal of 802mm – a deficit of around 31%.
