Parts of North India including Delhi and adjoining regions, Haryana, North Rajasthan and Punjab have remained mostly dry from past few days now.

During last 24 hours as well, rains have not made their appearance over these regions. In the wake of this, temperatures saw a minimal increase as well. In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am, Delhi saw a soaring temperature of 36°C which was 2 degree above the normal for the state.

Most of the districts in Punjab also observed rise in mercury. During the similar time frame, Amritsar recorded 35°C, Ludhiana, Pathankot and Bhatinda observed 34°C each.

In parts of Haryana as well, Bhiwani and Hisar both measured a whopping 37°C. While Faridabad and Gurgaon recorded 35.2°C temperature.

As of now also, mainly dry weather is likely to continue over most parts of Northern region of the country. Continuous easterly winds are expected to flow thus keeping the humidity level over these areas high.

This is surely going to be a discomfort time for the people residing in these regions of the country. Furthermore, between October 8 and 10, scattered rain and thundershower activities are likely to occur over North Rajasthan, Delhi and NCR region including parts of Haryana and West Uttar Pradesh as well.

After this rain episode, these winds are expected to change their direction and humid easterlies will be replaced by relatively cooler and drier northwesterly winds. During this time, temperatures are likely to witness a fall thereby, providing relief from the ongoing sultry weather conditions.

As of now also, the ongoing dry weather is likely to continue over most parts of North India. The reason for this can be associated with withdrawal of Monsoon which might take place from many parts of the North India in next 2-3 days due to likelihood of the establishment of an anticyclone over central Pakistan and adjoining Rajasthan.
