The last 48 hours observed dry weather for entire Delhi NCR region. The sky conditions remained mainly clear and no hindrance was observed in Republic Day celebrations. However, patches of high clouds made an appearance at some occasions. Moreover, in wake of the active Western Disturbance giving rains and snowfall over North India, its effect was seen in the form of cold winds over Delhi and adjoining areas such as Gurugram, Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.
Now, a feeble Western Disturbance as an upper air Cyclonic Circulation is moving across northern parts of Jammu & Kashmir. Due to this system, some patchy clouds may continue during the next 24 hours. Thereafter, sky conditions will become mainly clear and remain the same until January 29. During this span of time, continuous flow of dry and cold winds from northwesterly direction would also continue.
Further, during night hours, a slight decrease in temperatures is expected. Here, the days will remain pleasant with maximums settling between 18℃ and 19℃ followed by chilly cold nights with minimums remaining between 4℃ and 5℃. Meanwhile, during early morning hours, shallow to moderate fog and mist will take over the region thereby reducing the visibility to some extent. In addition to this, pollution will once again shoot up and come under ‘very poor’ category during early morning and evening hours. However, due to presence of cold winds during the day, pollution level will slightly improve and come under ‘moderate’ category.
Further, these conditions would change because another Western Disturbance is approaching the hills of North India around January 30. Thus, winds are expected to change directions. As a result, easterly winds will blow due to which temperatures will increase. Moreover, this system would also result in rains over Delhi and the NCR region around January 30 and 31.
