Rain Northwest India post

In the past day, Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh, parts of Punjab and Haryana received moderate to heavy rainfall. In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Friday, Ayanagar Observatory of Delhi recorded 78.8 mm of rain, Breilly 66.2 mm, Rohtak 43.6 mm, Aligarh 34.8 mm, Moradabad 39 mm, Karnal 29.4 mm, Kurukshetra 27 mm, Agra 26 mm, Gurgaon 40 mm, Patiala 18.2 mm, Chandigarh 14.4 mm, Amritsar 10.8 mm, Ludhiana 7.8 mm and Faridabad 2 mm of rain.


Both the maximum and minimum temperatures have dropped over these regions. In fact, the rains turned the night pleasant. As per Skymet Weather, these rains occurred due to the oscillation of the axis of Monsoon Trough towards south. This trough is currently passing through Bikaner, Ajmer, Guna, Rewa, Ambikapur, Raurkela and Balasore towards Northwest Bay of Bengal.

It is anticipated that the Monsoon trough will move further towards South away from the plains. Therefore, rainfall activity would reduce over the northwestern plains. Though, short spell rain and thundershower will continue to occur over, Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh, parts of Punjab and Haryana.

In fact, the extreme districts of East of Punjab, North Haryana, Northwest and adjoining foothills of Uttar Pradesh may witness few spells of light to moderate with isolated heavy rain in wake of the easterly moist winds blowing over these regions.

In wake of the reduction in rainfall activity, the temperatures are likely to rise marginally.
