For the past three to four days, the intensity of fog over most parts of northwestern plains is on a declining trend. The plains of Northwest India that include the states of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan as well as parts of Southwest Uttar Pradesh have witnessed a tremendous drop in the fog intensity that led to an improvement in the visibility levels.

As per Skymet Weather, moderate northwesterly winds are blowing over the plains of Northwest India which has led to the reduction in the humidity levels.

It is the reduced humidity levels and moderate wind speed that are not allowing fog to form over the plains of Northwest India. Under the absence of fog, the day temperatures have also increased which have abated the cold day conditions prevailing at isolated parts of Punjab, Haryana, and North Rajasthan.


In fact, the minimums in most parts of Northwest India have also witnessed a marginal rise. For instance, Delhi whose minimum temperature was 5.6°C a day before, settled at 8°C today. Similarly, the minimums in Amritsar also jumped from 2.4°C on January 10 to 4.5°C today. In fact, Sri Ganganagar recorded the minimums at 5.7°C today which was a sharp rise from 1.3°C on January 10.

Hence, in the wake of the rise in temperatures and the abatement of fog from Northwest India, warm days with clear sunny skies will prevail. However, mornings and nights are still expected to remain cold.

Thus, in a nutshell, for the next 2-3 days, the minimum temperatures are not expected to fall further and thus extremely cold nights are not expected in the plains of Northwest India.
