Winters have arrived in India and too with a bang. Minimum temperatures across northwestern plains have been falling continuously in the last few days. Minimum temperatures are 5-6 degrees below the normal average over Haryana, Rajasthan, and parts of Gujarat.


In fact, few places are already under the grip of cold wave conditions. According to Skymet Weather, when the mercury is below 10°C and five degrees less than the normal average, then it is declared as cold wave condition.

On Tuesday, Sikar in Rajasthan was the coldest city in Rajasthan with minimum temperature dropping to 4.5°C, six degrees below normal. Similarly, Jaisalmer was 10.3°C around five degrees below normal, Barmer settled at 7.2°C, which was 4 degrees below normal and Alwar recorded night temperature at 7.2°C, six degrees below normal.

In Haryana, Hisar saw a minimum of 7.6°C, five degrees below normal, while Karnal settled at 7.5°C and was five degrees below average.

Until November 19, a Western Disturbance was persisting over Jammu and Kashmir, which had given fairly widespread rain and snow over Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh. This obstructed the flow cold winds. However, with the system moving away, these icy cold northerly and northwesterly winds from the snow clad Himalayas once again started blowing across northwestern plains.

Normal during the third week of November, cold wave conditions are uncommon and temperatures usually start falling in December. But this time, the speed of northerly and northwesterly remained between 15 kmph-20 kmph and they continued for last 48 hours and reached up to Rajasthan and Gujarat as well.

Now, we expect these cold winds to continue for another 48 hours until November 23. Thus, we do not expect any relief from cold nights.
