January 10, 2019 9:25 AM |

Cloudy weather in Delhi and NCR

Due to its geographical location, India experiences different shades of weather right from extreme cold to hot, dry to rainy and humid to chilly. In fact, the four main metro cities of India i.e. Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai are distributed in all four directions. Therefore, the variability in weather conditions is always seen. However, large weather variability is seen during the months of January and February.

Let’s us have a look at the different shades of weather in all the major metro cities:

Chennai – After Northeast Monsoon, the capital city of Tamil Nadu goes almost dry. The month of February is also the least rainy month for the city with 3.4 mm of normal rainfall. In fact, January and February combined, end up in single digit rains. Moreover, anytime from mid-January the state starts experiencing warm weather.

Among all the four metro cities, both maximums and minimums of Chennai are the highest with maximums settling between low-30's and minimums around 20˚C.

Mumbai – This city stays far away from any significant weather activities during the month of January and February. In fact, Mumbai’s weather goes completely rainless right after the withdrawal of Southwest Monsoon. For five months right from December to April, the city records no rains at all.

The maximums of Mumbai also settle in low-30’s. Meanwhile, minimums are seen hovering around 15˚C.

Kolkata – Dry weather conditions are observed over Kolkata during this time. In fact, since the last 20 days, the city has received no rainfall and generally also the month of January ends up with single digits rain over Kolkata.

Similar to the above two, Kolkata also witnesses maximums in low-30’s and minimums around 14˚C.

Delhi – During this time of the year, Delhi experiences all sorts of weather activities such as rain, fog, winter chill, dry, smog and sunshine. Thus, we can say that in January and February, the city’s weather can go from being gloomy to bright any time depending upon the weather systems travelling across the Northern Hills. Normal rains for January are 19 mm and February are 22 mm.

The maximums of Delhi are the same as minimums of Chennai i.e. around 18˚C. Meanwhile, minimums usually stay around 7˚C.
