Cold winds bring Winter chill back to Delhi, temperatures plunge to 6.2 degrees  

January 19, 2020 11:14 AM |

Delhi woke up to a rather cold day today with morning temperatures settling close to 6.2 degrees. This is the coldest the city has seen since January 11 (5.6°C).

This Winter chill can be attributed to the prevalence of northerly winds blowing over the region all the way from snow-clad Himalayas.

During the last couple of days, dry weather conditions are prevailing over Delhi and NCR. Minimum temperatures have decreased as compared to the last few days. While, the day temperatures are below normal by two to four degrees, night temperatures remain close to normal.

Dry weather is likely to continue over Delhi NCR during the next week also. Presently, a feeble Western Disturbance as an upper air trough is moving away across northern parts of Ladakh region. Due to the prevalence of steep pressure gradient over Pakistan and adjoining parts of Northwest Plains, sub-tropical jet is prevailing over the region. Hence, strong winds are likely to prevail over Delhi and NCR during the next 24 hours. Thereafter, the wind speed will decrease, and its direction will change into Easterly.

Today the maximum temperatures are likely to settle at about 16 to 17 degrees while night temperatures will remain above 6 to 7 degrees.

During the next 24 hours, the pollution level, will decrease due to strong winds and might come down into ‘satisfactory to moderate’ level. After 24 hours, as the wind speed will be decreasing further, the pollution level will increase slightly. The sky conditions will remain mainly clear during the next 24 to 36 hours.

From January 20 onward, another Western Disturbance will be affecting Western Himalayas. Due to the approach of this system, night temperatures would be increasing gradually till January 23. Following this, yet again the temperatures will decrease.
