Its rainless February for Delhi, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Kanpur in 2018

February 28, 2018 6:23 PM |


The entire region of North India receives good amount of rains during the winter season. January and February are also considered the rainiest months for the region during this season.


Generally, rains are under the influence of the winter weather systems that include Western Disturbances and induced lows. Rains are caused in association of these weather systems individually or even a combination of two weather systems. However, rains under the influence of two weather systems are very intensive.

However, it has been turned out to be different this season, as winter rains were far below normal.  According to pan India records, rainfall activity has been very low for this winter season.

In fact, few stations in the northern plains received no rainfall at all in the month of February. For instance, Delhi, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Kanpur were among these stations.

The normal rainfall at these stations for the month of February is as following: Delhi – 19.7 mm, Jaipur – 10.6 mm, Jodhpur – 4 mm, and Kanpur – 9.2 mm.

According to Skymet Weather, although, there has been series of Western Disturbances affecting the hilly region of North India, but either they were week in intensity or travelling in higher latitudes.

Due to this, the rain activity remained confined to parts of Punjab and Haryana only, while low lying areas of Delhi and Rajasthan did not see much activity.
