Pleasant weather across North India; two die in U.P.

New Delhi: Rain and lightning claimed two lives in Uttar Pradesh where major rivers swelled even as pleasant weather continued in most parts of North India on Monday.

The mercury remained below normal in the national Capital where the maximum temperature settled at 36.7 degrees Celsius and the minimum at 27.3 degrees, both a notch below normal for this time of the season. Humidity was on the higher side, ranging between 51 and 79 per cent.

Two persons — one in Sitapur and other in Ghazipur — died in Uttar Pradesh due to rain and lightning, officials said.

Robertsganj received the maximum rainfall in the State at 120 mm, followed by Varanasi 63.7 mm, Ballia 41.3 mm and Shahjahanpur 33.2 mm.

Due to heavy rain at some places, water levels in major rivers like the Ganga, Ghagra and Gomti have started rising though all are below the danger mark as of now.

The maximum temperature continued to be a few notches below normal in Punjab and Haryana as well, while isolated places in the two States received light showers. Chandigarh recorded a maximum of 33.8 degrees, down three notches, the weatherman said here.

In Haryana, Ambala recorded a high of 35 degrees, down two degrees, while the maximum at Karnal settled at 36.6. Gurgaon recorded day temperature of 37, down three notches, while Hisar saw the maximum settle at 42, one above normal.

In Punjab, Amritsar recorded a high of 33.7 degrees, down by two notches, while the maximum temperature in Patiala settled at two degrees below normal at 33 degree Celsius. The weatherman has forecast light to moderate rain or thundershowers at a few places in the two States over the next two days.

Pre-monsoon rain brought down the day temperatures in parts of Rajasthan where Kota, Chittorgarh and Jodhpur recorded a maximum of 39.9, 39.5 and 39.4 degrees respectively. Other places in the State recorded maximum temperatures in the range of 32.5 to 39 degrees. - PTI
