As winter nears, temperatures start dropping in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and Rajasthan

November 18, 2019 9:55 AM |

North India winters

The National Capital Territory of Delhi recorded the lowest minimum of 11.7 degrees Celsius for the season so far on November 12. Soon after observing its first coldest, the temperatures started rising as successive Western Disturbances were seen approaching the Himalayan region. The winds also changed their direction to easterlies, leading to a continuous rise, so much so that the temperatures reached the above normal mark in the last two to three days.

Now, as the Western Disturbance has moved away, the flow of icy-cold wins from the snow-clad mountains of the Western Himalayas has resumed over the northern plains. As a result, the temperatures are again following a declining trend. Today, the Safdarjung Observatory recorded a minimum of 15.3 degree Celcius. Not only Delhi, but many others in Northwest India such as Punjab, Haryana and North Rajasthan are recording low minimums now.

According to our meteorologists, no significant Western Disturbance is likely to approach the Western Himalayas. Although a system is expected to develop around November 21, it would be a feeble one and would not bring much difference. Thus, temperatures are expected to drop further during the next two to three days. And it is safe to say that winters would make an onset over the northern plains by the end of this week. Winter chill would also be felt during morning and evening hours.
