The entire Northwest India is under the grip of dry and warm weather conditions. Rains have become a long-lost tale now for most parts of northern plains. Similar is the situation of Punjab and Haryana that have not witnessed rains from almost a month now.
Under the absence of rains, both the maximum and minimum temperatures have also scaled up to the range of 2-3 degrees in most parts of both these states. However, in the last 24 hours, the temperatures in over many parts of Haryana remained in mid to higher 30’s but Punjab has witnessed a drop in both the day and night temperatures that can be seen settling in lower and mid 30’s.
In the last 24 hours, the daytime high in Narnaul went up to settle at 38 °C which is 5 degrees beyond the normal. During the similar time frame, maximums of Hisar settled at 36.9 °C, Faridabad and Gurugram recorded 36.5°C each, Rohtak 36.2°C, Amritsar 33.5°C, Bathinda and Ferozepur 33.4°C each while the maximum temperature recorded by Patiala was 32.5°C.
As per Skymet Weather, due to the commencement of dry northwesterly winds over the northwest plains, sunny and dry weather is expected to continue. The maximums will remain stable for the next few days over both the states. However, a slight drop by 1 to 2 degrees is expected in the minimum temperature profile in the next 2-3 days.
Due to the drop-in the minimums, haze, and mist can be seen during the early morning hours over most parts of Punjab and Haryana. Nights in both parts of Punjab and Haryana are likely to remain cool and comfortable.
