The capital city of India, Delhi and its nearby regions have been experiencing cold wave conditions since the last many days. On December 29, the city observed the season’s coldest morning at 2.6˚C. In fact, December 18 onwards, Delhi has been recording its minimum temperatures below 5˚C.

Yesterday, the maximum temperature recorded over Delhi's Safdarjung Observatory was 20˚C and minimum was 3˚C.

Generally during the winter season, Delhi’s weather is governed by the Western Disturbances over the hills of North India. However, as this year most Western Disturbances moving across the higher latitudes i.e. northern parts of Jammu and Kashmir are feeble in nature, thus, the wind pattern over the city is not changing. Therefore, continuously northwesterly winds are prevailing over the entire Delhi-NCR region. These winds are mainly cold and dry in nature.

Now further also, as no significant change is expected in the wind pattern, weather conditions over Delhi-NCR are expected to remain same, during the next few days also.

At present, a feeble Western Disturbance lies over North Jammu and Kashmir. Hence, due to availability of little moisture and moderate to dense fog during the early morning hours, places such as Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad and Ghaziabad are likely to experience poor visibility conditions.

Talking about the temperatures, during the next 24 hours, slight rise in temperatures is expected. In fact, maximums will be seen settling between 20˚C to 21˚C and minimums between 3˚C to 5˚C. Thereafter, once again night temperatures will drop, as the above-mentioned weather system will move away.
