Chandigarh, February 8
The scattered rainfall and continuously cloudy skies today brought temperatures down in the city after a long dry spell, with minimum temperature recorded at 13.8 degrees Celsius and the maximum at 20.1 degrees. The weather remained pleasant for the whole day due to cloud cover.

The met department has predicted similar weather conditions for tomorrow with a generally cloudy sky with a few spells of rain or thundershowers. The maximum temperature is likely to be around 21 degrees C.

"We’re expecting isolated spells of rainfall and thunderstorms in the city in the next 24 to 48 hours. This is due to the fast approaching western disturbances over this part of the northern plains," said Chattar Singh, director of the meteorological department.

"There’s also a possibility of fast blowing cold waves to prevail in the region. It would certainly bring about a sharp plunge in both day and night temperatures," he added.

Vehicle drivers, especially two-wheeler riders were seen driving carefully on the streets strewn with leaves to avoid skidding.

Yesterday the maximum temperature had touched 25.8 degrees C, two degrees above normal.
