Weather Forecast Jan 21: Kashmir, Himachal, Uttarakhand to witness heavy rain and snow

January 20, 2019 6:30 PM |

To begin with North India, the Western Disturbance lies over North Pakistan and adjoining Jammu and Kashmir. Its induced cyclonic circulation is seen over Northwest Rajasthan and adjoining East central Pakistan. Both these systems would be moving east/northeastwards slowly.

Due to these systems, moderate to heavy rain and snow are expected over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. In fact, light to moderate rain with isolated hailstorm activity will also occur over Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh and North Rajasthan.
Significant fall in day temperatures will be seen over all these places.

Moving to Central India, due to prevalence of warm and moist winds, significant rise in temperatures will occur over Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha and Chhattisgarh. However, later towards the night Northwest Madhya Pradesh may receive spell of light rain.

Meanwhile in east and Northeast India, due to approaching active Western Disturbance, the anti-cyclone has shifted over Odisha Coast, which is providing moist winds. Hence, dry weather with rise in temperatures is expected over East Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal.

The seasonal cyclonic circulation persists over southern parts of Northeast India. But the northeastern states will also experience mainly dry weather with rise in temperatures.

Down South, as low-pressure area has formed over central parts of South Bay of Bengal and adjoining parts of equatorial Indian Ocean, light to moderate rains will continue over South Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Light rains are also expected over few coastal stations of Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
