Late winters for Northern plains; minimums to drop over Punjab,Haryana,Rajasthan

November 17, 2018 9:27 AM |

Winters in north India

We are in the middle of November, yet need of woolens is still not being felt in most parts of  Northern plains.

Although, temperatures had dipped significantly around Deepawali, yet an increase in both day and night temperatures was being noted.

In fact, minimums have increased by 6℃-7℃ since November 8. The reason for this spike in temperatures can be attributed to the presence of one after the other Western Disturbances that had approached Western Himalayas.

Generally, whenever any Western Disturbance approaches Jammu and Kashmir, it gets preceded by a warm front. As a result, winds change their directions and start blowing from South West and South East directions.

These winds are warm and humid. Consequently, an increase in minimums is felt.

Since last afternoon, winds have changed their path and are now blowing from Northwest direction.

These winds are coming from Jammu & Kashmir as well as Himachal Pradesh that have recently experienced heavy snowfall.

Due to these icy cold winds, both day and night temperatures have already dropped by 2℃-4℃.

Further, we expect a significant fall in minimums over Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh, North Rajasthan and North Madhya Pradesh.

Hence, we can say that winters are going to commence soon, although a wait of one more week is needed for day temperatures to actually start dropping and mornings and nights to give us chills.
