December 9, 2019 5:17 PM |

Northwest rains

The prolonged dry spell over Northwest India is going to come to an end as good rains are expected to commence over many parts of Punjab, Haryana and North Rajasthan on December 12 and 13.

A fresh Western Disturbance will approach Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow i.e. December 10 which will induce a Cyclonic Circulation over the western parts of Rajasthan. This Western Disturbance, as well as Cyclonic Circulation, will gradually move eastwards.

In the wake of these weather systems, we expect moderate rains with one or two heavy spells over the northern districts of Punjab and Haryana on December 12 and 13. Places such as Gurdaspur, Pathankot, Ludhiana, Hoshiarpur, Amritsar, Kapurthala, Rupnagar and, Jalandhar in Punjab will receive heavy rains. Whereas, Panchkula, Yamunanagar, Chandigarh and Ambala in Haryana will receive moderate rains with one or two heavy spells.

Scattered rains are also possible over North and West Rajasthan during the same period. Delhi and western parts of Uttar Pradesh are also very likely to receive good rains on December 12 and 13. Hailstorm is possible over isolated pockets of Punjab, Haryana, North Rajasthan, Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh.

The day temperatures are expected to fall by 2-4 degrees Celsius due to rain and cloud cover. By December 14, the weather of entire Northwest India will start clearing up and the day temperatures may increase marginally but there will be a significant drop in the minimums of Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, North Rajasthan and West Uttar Pradesh between December 14 and December 16. There are chances of dense fog in many parts of Punjab, Haryana and West Uttar Pradesh on December 14 and 15.

This will be one of the heaviest spells during the month of December and due to these rains, we expect Delhi Pollution to improve and may come in the 'moderate' category.
