Cold day and cold wave conditions abate Delhi as temperatures rise

January 10, 2023 12:12 PM |

Delhi and the NCR region have seen extremely low temperatures with the city witnessing the lowest minimum of January since 2010 at 1.9 degrees with only 2013 seeing the same minimum in January. Cold wave conditions along with dense fog as well as cold day conditions had become a regular feature for the national capital, which has been brutal for the residents.

There was a Western Disturbance previously, but it was not strong enough to have resulted in an alteration of the wind pattern and furthermore the abatement of cold day or cold wave conditions.

However, with another strong Western Disturbance over the North Pakistan region today, temperatures across Delhi and the NCR region have seen a significant rise resulting in the abatement of cold wave and cold day conditions. The maximum yesterday at Safdarjung observatory increased to 18.6 degrees whereas the minimum also witnessed a sharp rise with today morning observing it at 6.4 degrees Celsius.

The fresh Western Disturbance will start to affect the hills of North India today itself. While the system is expected to give rains over the foothills of Punjab and Haryana, the chances of rainfall look bleak for Delhi and the NCR region and the city will have to make do with just about some clouding.

As far as the temperatures are concerned, similar conditions are expected for the next three to four days at least. In fact, fog situation will also improve and we do not expect dense to very dense fog to be seen over the national capital.

However, starting January 15, a sharp dip is likely and cold wave conditions may once again make an appearance. There is another disturbance likely around January 17-18, but it may not be strong enough to result in a significant rise in temperatures.
