Unseasonal rain has occurred over many parts of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and at isolated pockets of Gujarat. A series of Western disturbances have induced cyclonic circulation and low-pressure area over Rajasthan. Wind direction changed from north westerly to south westerly. Humid and relatively warmer winds from Arabian Sea associated with cloud cover have increased the minimums over above-mentioned states.
Western disturbance has moved away, and low-pressure area is also moving to the east. Normal pattern of Icy cold winds has resumed over many parts of Rajasthan, Gujarat and western parts of Madhya Pradesh. Minimum temperature of Gujarat has already dropped by 5 to 7 degrees during last 24 hours. minimums of Rajasthan dropped by 4 to 5 degrees.
Western districts of Madhya Pradesh also witnessed a fall of 2 to 3 degrees. We do not expect any significant Western disturbance to approach Western Himalayas until end of January. Therefore, cold and dry winds from north and Northwest will continue leading to further drop in minimums over northwest and Central India. We do not expect cold wave to make a comeback, but winter chill will surely come back and stay for another one week or so.
