Summers in Delhi

The northwestern plain of the country has been the centre of weather activity for the last few days in terms of rain and dust storm. A Western Disturbance in the northern hills along with an induced Cyclonic Circulation has been the reason behind some good activity in the region.

Now, both these systems have moved away and become insignificant . The pre-Monsoon rain and thundershower activities that happened on April 15, 16 and 17 have now subsided. According to meteorologists at Skymet, the weather in the northwestern part of the country including the national capital Delhi  and its adjoining areas like Noida and Gurugram would now become dry with temperatures expected to rise gradually.

The easterlies have changed their direction to westerlies/northwesterlies, these dry and hot winds will lead to rise in mercury levels. However, the temperatures are presently below normal at many places. For instance, on April 19, Amritsar recorded a maximum of 31.6°C which was three degrees below normal. While, Delhi’s Safdarjung Observatory recorded 32.6° as maximum on the same day, which was four degrees below normal. Whereas, in Chandigarh both the day and night temperatures settled at 32.6°C and 19.8°C, respectively, which were about two to four degrees below normal.

Though, temperatures are now expected to rise due to clear skies, heat wave conditions will not be observed in the region for at least  3-4 days.

Delhi and its adjoining areas may however see a significant rise in temperatures in the next two days.The day temperature could touch 39°C in the city. Similar weather conditions are expected in Uttar Pradesh as well.
