A hazy day followed by a mostly clear night is the forecast for the Punjab Cricket Association stadium, Mohali, which hosts a group-2 match in the Super 10 of the ICC World T20 cricket tournament.

Pakistan takes on New Zealand in what is a crucial match for the former after its defeat against India in the last encounter. A victory will ensure New Zealand a berth in the last four.

The weather tonight is forecast to be fair, with humidity ranging between 50 and 60 per cent. Cooler than normal winds from the North-Northwest are expected to prevail during the night.

Mohali lies just adjacent to Chandigarh, which is now enjoying a pleasant interval between the visitations of successive western disturbances.

Western disturbances are the main atmospheric phenomena which decide the course of weather over North-West India during this time of the year.

An incumbent is currently moving away after its stopover during the past few days. The next one is scheduled to arrive by tomorrow night with its baggage of snow and rainfall for the hills and hail and thundershowers for the plains, of which Chandigarh is a part.
