Winters in India

Winters have marked its appearance over the northern plains of the country including the national capital, Delhi, and adjoining areas of Uttar Pradesh. Winter in Delhi, Punjab and UP can be finally felt as a thick blanket of fog and cold weather awaken residents these days.

Since the beginning of December, moderate to dense fog has been enveloping most of the north Indian states. In the wake of this, minimum temperatures over most parts of the region are settling above normal.

This fog layer is expected to act as a greenhouse cover which will not allow the minimum temperatures to fall further. However, due to the persistent fog cover over these regions, not much sunny spells are expected and sunshine is likely to remain hazy.

Moreover, the sun is expected to show its face only for a few hours, particularly during the afternoon. Most of the northern plains will remain engulfed under the fog cover from early morning until forenoon and thereafter, again by late afternoon and evening.

Due to this, the maximum temperatures will remain below normal. As of now, already the maximum in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and parts of north Madhya Pradesh has fallen and is running below normal by 4-6°C.

Now, the fog belt will persist over Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and north Rajasthan, therefore the temperature of these regions will also fall leading to cold air conditions at many places over Uttar Pradesh and at a few places over Punjab, Haryana, and parts of north Madhya Pradesh.

In a nutshell, it can be said that winters have approached over the northern region of the country in a true sense.
