The Western Disturbance has now moved away across East Jammu and Kashmir. Due to this, the cool and dry winds from northwest have started blowing over the plains of the country. Since last evening the winds have picked up pace and are moderate to strong in nature around 20-25 kmph even gusting to 30 kmph. These winds have led to fall in temperatures, both day and night over Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, national territory Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh.
The temperatures which saw an uprising trend have now dropped by 5°C-6°C attributed to cool dry north-westerlies. The maximum temperature in Delhi have been recorded near 23°C and the minimums are around 9°C which was around 16°C, yesterday. Similar conditions were seen in Ludhiana as well, wherein the minimums have been recorded at 9°C against 14°C and Bathinda recorded minimum at 7°C against 10°C.
The north-westerlies would continue for the day and will be moderate to strong in nature. The wind speed is expected to reduce by tomorrow, i.e. February 24 as the wind pattern would change and a fresh Western Disturbance would once again start affecting the hills of the North by February 25 evening. Sky will be cloudy with thunderstorm activities in offing. The activity would peak around February 26 and reduce on February 27. By February 28, the weather is expected to clear up.
