Cool weather in Delhi in the mornings is now under threat as minimum temperatures have started showing an upward trend. Night temperature jumped higher by 3 degrees today, which for this time of the year is above normal by 2 degrees. Skymet Weather forecast further rise in minimum temperatures in Delhi during the next couple of days.
We at Skymet weather cite the movement of a Western Disturbance over Jammu & Kashmir from tomorrow onwards as the reason behind the rise in night temperatures in Delhi. With this, northwesterly winds that cool down the night are making way for southwesterly winds. These winds are warm and humid and suddenly increase the minimum temperatures.
As the morning weather in Delhi has begun to witness more sunlight, with each passing day, it would become even warmer. More sunlight during morning hours will nullify the drop in minimum temperatures that happens just after the exit of Western Disturbances.
Weather in Delhi is in a transition phase just like the other parts of north and northwest India. Maximum temperatures are up by 5 to 10 degrees in the Western Himalayan region and isolated pockets in plains of Punjab and Haryana. Minimum temperatures in these places would be above normal during the next two days.
The western parts of the country such as Kutch and Saurashtra in Gujarat and Mumbai and Konkan and Goa along the west coast are experiencing hot day conditions. These regions are recording temperatures into late thirties and they are above normal by up to 10 degrees. Mumbai has registered 39 degrees plus on trot in the last three days. Weather in Goa has a maximum temperature of 37.3 degrees that is above normal by 6 degrees. Easterly winds that are absorbing heat while sweeping the land are reaching here during the afternoons.
Wind conditions are likely to stay the same in Indo-Gangetic plains at least for next 24 hours from now but thereafter a change is seen as northwesterly to westerly winds would stop for a short period and southeasterly or southwesterly winds will prevail in the region. That could increase the minimum temperatures in the region.
In south India, rain is expected at a few places in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and south interior Karnataka during the next 24 hours but the weather would become dry after that. A low pressure area in southwest Bay of Bengal and another in southeast Arabian Sea are responsible for rainfall in the region.
