November is the least rainy period for Punjab and Haryana. It is an intermediate period between the withdrawal of Southwest Monsoon and the onset of winters and is dominated by pleasant weather conditions. The places along the foothills sometimes get lucky to observe good rainfall activities, the interior parts, on the other hand, remain almost quiet.
The reason being the Western Disturbance fails to induce a system that can reach up to the interior parts and only manages to affect the foothills. But when these two weather systems appear simultaneously, they result in some good showers.
The duo had already witnessed one good spell between November 7 and 8, wherein moderate rain with a few heavy spells lashed the region. And at present, the conditions are favourable for another such spell.
According to Skymet Weather, a Western Disturbance is moving across North Pakistan and adjoining region. This system has induced a Cyclonic Circulation over North Rajasthan and adjoining Pakistan. The combined effect of these two weather systems would give light rain with a few moderate spells today and tomorrow in Punjab and Haryana.
The spread would be more today while by tomorrow the rainfall activities would taper to some extent over the region. The sky would also be cloudy for the next two days.
The pace of winter is governed by different weather systems. The arrival and passage of Western Disturbance bring major fluctuations in the temperatures. The passage brings in cold air and as a result, the maximums drop while minimums rise. The scenario is however opposite when a system approaches. Moreover, these systems restrict the flow of winds and result in high pollution levels.
During the next two days, minimums are expected to rise in Punjab and Haryana. The pollution level is also going to be ‘poor to very poor’.
