New Delhi, Temperatures, both maximums and the minimums are expected to rise marginally over northwest plains and hills during the next 24 hours. Snowfall expected over Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh during the next 48 hours. Rain is likely in the northeastern states during the next two to three days. Rain would reduce over south Peninsula during the next two days.
The feeble Western Disturbance over Pakistan and adjoining Jammu & Kashmir has started affecting the northwest plains and hills as it will bring snowfall and rain at a few places over Jammu & Kashmir and at one or two places over Himachal Pradesh during the next couple of days.
The Western Disturbance will bring clouds and will stop the cool northerly winds that had dropped the minimum temperatures below normal over northwest and Indo-Gangetic plains. The maximum temperature would rise marginally over these places as the heat will not be able to escape due to covered skies and the minimum temperatures would rise a bit as northerlies are being cut off by the eastward moving weather system towards Jammu & Kashmir.
This Western Disturbance will then reach over the northeastern states by December 9 or 10 to bring rain over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya. One or two places could experience light rain with rise in temperatures during the dates mentioned above. Another Western Disturbance is expected over Jammu & Kashmir that will start affecting the region from December 10.
In the south Peninsula, rain is expected to reduce over Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka during the next 24 hours as the cyclonic circulation has become insignificant. But remnants of the circulation would continue to bring rain at one or two places over these areas at this time.
Along the West coast, a trough of low pressure area is extending from southeast to east-central Arabian Sea with an associated cyclonic circulation over Comorin area along the Kerala coast. This system would bring clouds over interior parts of Maharashtra and light rain is likely at isolated places in the region during the next 24 hours.
