The Northern Plains of India have seen some rainfall activity in the past couple of days. This was due to the prevailing Western Disturbance and its induced Circulation.
Now, in the wake of the system, single-digit minimums have made an appearance over some parts and temperatures, in general, have dropped all across the Northern Plains including Delhi.
Delhi in fact saw its minimum below the 10-degree mark. Rajasthan also witnessed a drop in minimums with Churu recording the minimum at 8 degrees Celsius, Pilani 8.1 degrees, Sikar 8.9 degrees and Sri Ganganagar witnessing 9 degrees. All of these cities were previously witnessing minimums around 12-14 degrees Celsius.
Other minimums in North India include Meerut 9.1 degrees, Amritsar 7.1 degrees, Karnal 7.8 degrees. Thus, minimums across Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Haryana in the wake of the Western Disturbance resulted in the winter chill.
However, this change is a short-lived one and very soon another system will make an appearance over the Western Himalayas. With this, changeover in the winds will be seen and temperatures will again increase to double-digit.
