According to the MeT office here, Punjab had widespread rains today, covering almost the entire state, while Haryana had it in places like Faridabad, Kurukshetra, Palwal, Kaithal, Jind, Ambala, Panchkula, Yamunanagar and Hisar.
Chandigarh too received some rainfalls today morning.
The rains, which are unusual during this time of the year for Punjab and Haryana, were caused by western disturbances.
Farmers say the rainy conditions are detrimental for their wheat harvest.
"The rains are unusual during this time of the year. During the past three days, the weather has been either rainy or overcast, which may delay the wheat harvest," said Santokh Singh, a farmer from Jalandhar district.
There were reports that the winds accompanying the rains have slightly flattened the crop at a few places in the two states.
