Weather Forecast Jan 15: Light rain and snow in Kashmir; Himachal, Uttarakhand to remain dry

06:30 PM

Continuous rain and snow has brought life to standstill across Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Now also, we do not expect any relief as a fresh western Disturbance is over North Pakistan and its adjoining areas. To begin with, this system might give isolated rain activities over Northern parts of Jammu and Kashmir but will pick up pace in the next 24 hours and gradually cover parts of Himachal and Uttarakhand as well.

With westerly and northwesterly dry winds blowing over the region, plains of Northwest India will be dry. Marginal drop of one to two degrees in minimums is expected over Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, parts of Rajasthan and West Uttar Pradesh.

Fog is not expected to make a comeback; however, haze or mist will persist over the plains. After a brief relief, Delhi pollution might rise marginally.

The cold and dry winds from Northwest are expected to reach over East India. As a result, minimum temperatures may drop over East Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, parts of Jharkhand and Odisha by 1-3 °C.

Coming to Northeast India, remnants of Western Disturbance might give isolated light rains over the upper reaches of Arunachal Pradesh. Rest northeastern states will witness dry weather. Fog would remain absent from this region, but mist and haze can be seen in East Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Sub Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim.

In Central India, an Anti-Cyclone is seen over Vidarbha and adjoining areas, keeping the weather of entire Central India. Night temperatures of East Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Vidarbha are likely to fall marginally by 1-2°C, while rest of the places will not observe much change in temperatures.

Down South, due to absence of any weather system, weather will be completely dry. However, the only pocket to see some weather activity is southern islands of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Day will be warm and sunny over most places wherein day temperatures of Coastal Karnataka and Kerala will be in mid 30s, while rest places will have day temperature in lower 30s. The day and night temperatures of Telangana might fall marginally by a degree whereas Interior Karnataka and Rayalaseema might witness a marginal rise because of the winds blowing from southeast.
