Hills And Plains Of North India: Simultaneous Pre Monsoon Rain And Thunderstorm Likely

April 19, 2024 1:09 PM |

The hills and plains of North India are coming up for yet another wet spell. Already, the region experienced rain in the lower hills and snow in the higher reaches, yesterday. Parts of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan witnessed light rain and drizzle. Pathankot, Jalandhar, Amritsar, Ludhiana, Patiala, Chandigarh, Hisar, Sirsa, Bikaner, and Jaipur recorded light rainfall, yesterday. Pre-monsoon activity will continue till 23rd April, with a little pause, in between.

Western disturbance is marked over North Pakistan and Jammu & Kashmir. An induced cyclonic circulation lies over North Punjab and parts across the border. Under the combined influence of these systems, the hilly states will have rain and snow for the next 4-5 days. Hailstorms are also likely over some parts of Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir Valley. The state of Uttarakhand will have minimal weather activity.

Plains of Punjab and Haryana can expect scattered rain and thunderstorms, today. The northern half of these two states will be more susceptible for pre-monsoon activity. The trail of this will extend right up to Delhi. The capital city is likely to have rain and thunderstorms during the evening and night. Plains will have a pause, tomorrow and start afresh, a day later from 21st Apr onwards. The activity after a brief stop will be in association with a fresh weather system arriving, largely for hills and partially for the plains. Though the intensity of weather in the latter spell will be less the spread will be more, to cover parts of Rajasthan and West Uttar Pradesh, as well. West and central Rajasthan will be more vulnerable to dust storm activity accompanied with strong winds.

A continuous trail of western disturbance across North India has suppressed any abrupt rise of temperatures. These are hovering mostly in mid 30’s. Yes, a few locations, adjacent to the border areas of Rajasthan have risen to the high 30’s, yet, none of these has breached the 40°C mark. A similar trend is likely to continue, as the weather activity may stretch past midweek next.
