Light rain in the form of drizzle since early morning of 18th January that continued till evening in various parts of the district has resulted in a dip in mercury. This is a boon for wheat farmers. The rain that occurs around Lohri or Maghi is always a welcome in the countryside. This creates a comeback of winter effect which is much needed for good yield of wheat crop. However it has made young children face tough weather once again who had joined school again after special winter break yesterday only, with a long week end children expect sunny weather from next week. The rain in Sirsa is said to be about 16mm.
