Winter season in North India started on a completely different note, back to back Western Disturbances along with their induced weather systems kept affecting the hills and plains.

Normally, once February ends, these weather systems gradually start fading. However, this year in the month of March so far, the region has been affected by two to three successive Western Disturbance. In fact, in the coming 10 days, weather systems will continue affecting entire North India.

According to the weather data available with Skymet, on March 11, the city of Amritsar recorded its maximum temperature at 18.4˚C which was about 8˚C below normal, followed by Patiala 19.5˚C, which was also below normal by almost 7˚C. The last time, wherein these cities recorded such low day temperatures was in March 2015.

Looking at the current weather scenario, we can say that winter season is extending. Cool winds are still persisting during early morning and late evening hours. Moreover, due to continuous intermittent rain and thundershowers, hot weather conditions are yet to make an appearance in northwestern plains.

Generally, during the first week of March one or two places in Punjab and Haryana observe day temperature settling close to 30˚C. But this time, as on March 13, not even a signal district in North India has recorded maximum temperature of 30˚C.

At present, the maximum temperatures over most parts of Punjab and Haryana are being recorded between 27˚C to 29˚C.

Let us now have a look at the difference between normal average temperatures in the month of March vs the actual maximums recorded till March 12, 2019 in few major cities of Punjab and Haryana.
