Mohali, Mar 29: The blockbuster World Cup semifinal clash between India and Pakistan is unlikely to be affected by rain though partly cloudy sky will prevail tomorrow, according to the Meteorological Department here.

"The local forecast for tomorrow is partly cloudy sky with less chance of rain," an official the Chandigarh-based MeT Department told PTI.

Today, Mohali and Chandigarh witnessed bright sunshine during the day. Dust storm with drizzle had occurred yesterday.

According to the MeT's area forecast, including that of entire Punjab, there could be dust storm or thunderstorm with light rain at a few places in the state tomorrow.

The MeT said that currently western disturbance is prevailing over Jammu and Kashmir and its neighbourhood while Rajasthan and its neighbourhood has been experiencing an Upper Air Cyclonic Circulation.

If it rains and still no game is possible on the reserve day then India will go through on the basis of their net run-rate.

The maximum temperature at Mohali and Chandigarh is hovering in the range of 30-32 degrees Celsius.

The maximum relative humidity today was around 68 per cent and the minimum relative humidity was likely to be around 39 per cent.

According to the Mohali pitch curator Daljit Singh, ball is likely to seam around under the flood lights.
