Delhi gears up for good rains, winter chill finally on its way

Delhi Rains

A predicted jubilation is in store for Delhiites, those who enjoy the wintry chill, as Delhi is predicted to witness its first significant winter rains on December 11-12.

So far in this winter season, the national capital has not witnessed any spell of good rains, leading to warm days and nights. The famous winter chill remains absent from the city and nearby areas of Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.

However, weathermen are expecting rains to finally make an appearance over Delhi, which would mark the onset of winter in true sense.

Cardinal reasons behind this noteworthy shift in weather can be attributed to the approaching Western Disturbance, which would induce a cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan.


These weather impetuses are responsible for considerable downpour in other regions of northwestern plains as well as in Delhi NCR. “Fairly widespread light to moderate rains and thundershowers would lash Delhi-NCR early next week. One or two heavy spells also cannot be ruled out,” says AVM G P Sharma,President- Meteorology, Skymet Weather.

Moreover, these winter rains will cause reversal in the wind pattern from westerly and northwesterly winds to humid easterly or south-easterly. The forthcoming consequences of these rains in Delhi will be perceptible and visible in the form of increased humidity level.

These rains are likely to stay over northwestern plains for 2-3 days. However, as both the weather systems move away, icy cold winds from snow-clad Himalayas would start blowing over the region. This would lead to significant drop in both the maximum and minimum temperatures.

This approaching rainy spell would also bring much needed respite from air pollution over the capital and people could get some cleaner air.
