The northwestern plains of the country have been witnessing an elongated dry spell as the winter rains have remained on the lower side for the region. The plains of Northwest India have not witnessed any rains in the month of January and the last rainy spells observed by the region was about a month ago, i.e., on December 11 and 12.
However, the wait for rains will now get over soon as some rains are predicted to occur in parts of Northwest India.
As per Skymet Weather, the Western Disturbance is now over Afghanistan and adjoining Iran and an associated cyclonic circulation extends up to mid-tropospheric level. This Western Disturbance would interact with an easterly trough over the northern plains of the country by tomorrow, thereby resulting in scattered rains over the plains of Northwest India.
