After a long gap of over a month, rainfall activity had made an appearance over the North Indian plains around January 22 and 23. Thus, foggy conditions took a backseat and clear weather took over.
Thereafter, dense to very dense fog once again made a comeback in January over the states of Punjab and Haryana. Since then, the states of Punjab, as well as Haryana, have been reeling under cold day conditions due to the persistence of dense fog. In fact, these foggy conditions also continued for longer durations.
This persisting fog layer furthermore resulted in the decrease in day temperatures. Thus, the weather remained dry and very cold over the region.
Now, the west-northwesterly winds have gained strength leading to decreased fog intensity. These moderate winds are expected to continue for next 3 to 4 days. Isolated pockets of these states may see shallow fog, but visibility will remain good and the sun will come up early.
With this, day temperatures will increase and may reach around mid-20s over many parts of Haryana and few parts of Punjab. With this, cold day conditions will completely take a backseat.
After February 4, reduction in temperatures is expected once again and maximums may once again begin to settle in the teens. Until then, the residents of Punjab and Haryana can enjoy the comfortable weather.
