Heat wave conditions have abated from most parts of Central and Northwest India. However, isolated pockets of Gujarat are still witnessing heat wave. Temperatures of Delhi, South Haryana and adjoining parts of Rajasthan have subsided after March 22nd. Reason for drop in temperature can be attributed to moderate to strong winds blowing across Northwest India.
We do not expect any significant active Western disturbance to approach Western Himalayas in coming days. The weather of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand will remain almost dry. However, there may be isolated rain and light snowfall over upper reaches of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Weather of Northwest India including Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh and North Rajasthan will also remain dry and hot. Wind speed is also expected to slow down now. Light winds and dry weather will once again increase the temperatures over Northwest India leading to heat wave conditions at isolated pockets of South Haryana and Rajasthan.
Westerly and Southwesterly dry and hot winds will increase the temperatures of West Rajasthan and Gujarat leading to heat wave. Gradually heat wave will cover parts of north Madhya Maharashtra and Vidarbha as well.
Weather of entire Northwest and Central India is expected to remain dry until beginning of April. Pre monsoon activities may resume in the month of April which may give some relief from hot weather conditions.
