According to the IMD, the average maximum temperature rose by 0.1°C on Sunday, but it remained 1.9°C below normal in the state. Similarly, the average minimum temperature rose by 0.2°C on Monday, but remained near normal across the state.

According to Met officials, the weather will remain dry and there will be no cloud activity in the region for the next two or three days. On Monday, the city recorded a minimum temperature of 10.5 degrees Celsius (°C) and a maximum temperature of 26.7°C. While no local weather system is developing, rain and snowfall in the hills will likely bring cold air into the region, resulting in a temperature drop.

The maximum temperature is expected to drop by one or two degrees in the coming days, according to Manmohan Singh, director of IMD in Chandigarh, but the weather will remain dry. "The drop in maximum temperature occurs as winter sets in and the hilly areas of north India experience rain and snowfall. The cold winds from the mountains are causing the temperature drop," he said, adding that no significant weather activity, such as rain, is expected.

According to the IMD, the average maximum temperature rose by 0.1°C on Sunday, but it remained 1.9°C below normal in the state. Similarly, the average minimum temperature rose by 0.2°C on Monday, but remained near normal across the state. According to IMD Chandigarh, daytime temperatures could drop by one degree. According to the IMD's forecast, maximum and minimum temperatures will range between 25°C and 9°C over the next seven days.

Meanwhile, the city's air quality remained poor, with an average 24-hour air quality index (AQI) of 276 recorded by the Central Pollution Control Board's 4pm daily bulletin. According to air quality experts, the high wind speed seen on Monday aided in the dissipation of pollutants. Meanwhile, the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (Safar) reported that upper-level winds over Delhi-NCR will be northwest for the next three days, bringing in more pollutants from stubble-burning states if fire counts rise.

The AQI is expected to remain in the "poor" or "lower end of very poor" category for the next three days due to the net effect of pollutant inflow and local dispersion and ventilation over Delhi-NCR, according to the report.
