Maximum temperature in Chandigarh went up to 27°C on Tuesday, the highest for a February day since it was recorded at 29°C on the last day of the month in 2018. Meanwhile, minimum temperature went up from Monday’s 9.8°C to 10.3°C.

According to India Meteorological Department (IMD), the mercury is likely to rise further in the coming days.

“With no fog and clear skies, sunlight is warming up the city. We can now say the winters are over. With the higher intensity of sunlight, temperature can further rise by a notch or two in the coming days,” said Surender Paul, director, IMD, Chandigarh.

Spells of dense fog are over
