Delhi Overcomes Jinx Of Dry Weather, Capital And Suburbs Witness Winter Rains

November 10, 2023 2:08 PM |

National capital finally lifted the dry spell barrier to witness decent showers last night and early morning. Delhi rained last on 16-17 October 2023 and a prolonged break, thereafter.  Main observatory at Safdarjung recorded 6mm rainfall and the airport observatory measured just 3mm. The highest rainfall of 12mm was registered at Jafarpur. Meteorological office at Lodhi Road recorded rainfall of 5.8mm.

Rain and showers still continue across the capital city and NCR, albeit mostly light to moderate in nature.  Palam, Safdarjung, Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad and Faridabad are simultaneously observing intermittent showers.  Conditions remain favourable for continuation of this activity till early evening and exit thereafter. Prevailing wind pattern is shifting these rains from west to east direction. Clearance will start from Rewari, Jhajhar and Nuh to cross beyond Bulandshahar and Aligarh by late evening.

The weather activity has been in association with the anticipated fresh western disturbance and induced cyclonic circulation over North India.  Fairly wide spread activity lashed the northern mountains and the foothills of Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana and West Uttar Pradesh.  Moderate activity spilled over to northern half of Punjab and Haryana plains. Tail end of the system managed to reach the capital city, strapping most areas with much needed sporadic showers.

The weather activity is expected to cease anytime in the late evening or latest by early night. In the wake of system, cold winds will bring some nip in the air. Clear sky, moist and cold winds, coupled with average breeze will drop the minimum temperatures by 3-4°C, over the next 3-4 days. Snow in the higher and mid reaches of mountains and medium rains in the lower hills with chilly northwesterly winds  will support significant drop of mercury levels , across the region. No fresh western disturbance will cause any further interruption for the next 10 days.
