Coldest phase of Delhi Winters may be over now

On January 14, 2017, Delhi’s Safdarjung observatory recorded its coldest minimum temperature of 3.2°C after 2013. But in the span of 24 hours the minimum temperature of the observatory has increased to 8.6°C. Similarly, Palam observatory of Delhi which recorded 4.6°C on January 14, 2017 saw mercury rising to 9°C today morning.

This sudden increase in temperatures over Delhi and NCR can be attributed to an induced cyclonic circulation over Punjab and Haryana. Due to this cyclonic circulation, icy cold winds from North have been cut off leading to increase in temperatures.

Now we expect the temperatures will not drop significantly as the cyclonic circulation will persist over Punjab and adjoining area. And another western disturbance will approach Jammu and Kashmir in quick succession on January 17, 2017.

Though minimum temperatures of Delhi may drop marginally in next 24 hours but this drop may not be significant enough to repeat the chilly wintery conditions of Delhi. So we can say that coldest phase of this winter is over now. With rise of temperatures cold wave condition has abated from Delhi & NCR.
