Punjab rainsThe wait for Monsoon rains over the plains of North India is likely to come to end very soon. This region has been receiving good rains for two consecutive days now.

A cyclonic circulation persists over Punjab and adjoining areas. A trough is extending from this system to Northwest Bay of Bengal, across Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and the low pressure area over North Odisha and adjoining Jharkhand and Gangetic plains. The trough is likely to shift slightly southwards and may move across Delhi region.

As of now, active Monsoon activities are going on over Uttarakhand. Monsoon seems to be vigorous along the foothills as well with southern parts of Jammu receiving good rains.

Widespread rain is expected over Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh and adjoining Rajasthan during next 24 to 48 hours. Overcast sky with intermittent rains will be observed over these areas. Few spells of heavy rain are also likely.

On Friday, Jalandhar received 93 mm of rainfall. Here’s a look at the rainfall figures in rest of the plains areas of North India during last 24 hours:
