Northwest India and rise in temperature

As we entered into the thick of summer season, Northwest India has been battling blazing hot weather conditions, with the significant rise in the temperatures from the past two days. Prior to this, due to the presence of Cyclone Fani, easterly current was seen across all Indo Gangetic Plains of the country. On Friday, i.e. on May 3, we even witnessed dust storm and thunderstorm activity. Post that, it has been completely dry over Delhi and adjoining areas of Noida, Gurugram, and Faridabad.

According to experts, from May 6-8, this trend of rising temperatures along with dry weather would be a sight. Also, hot winds of moderate intensity would be blowing all over the plains. When such moderate winds are combined with rise in temperatures, they then tend to give birth to loo type conditions.

Loo type conditions would prevail across northern parts of Haryana, isolated pockets of Punjab, Delhi and NCR along with West Uttar Pradesh. We expect day temperatures to increase significantly and would be settling in range of 40-45 degree Celsius.

Weathermen predict that there would no relief before the weekend. May 10 onward, change in weather conditions would be a sight over the northwestern plains. During this time, passage of two back to back active Western Disturbances would seen up in the hills. Thus, May 10-May 15, a prolonged spell of varying intensity will be seen which would eventually cover more areas.

The intensity of rains will be more May 13 onward and would continue till May 15 across Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and NCR, West Uttar Pradesh and parts of Rajasthan. Initially, around May 10 –12, the system would give pre-Monsoon rains over North and West Rajasthan and by May 13 it would cover major parts of Rajasthan along with the northern parts of Madhya Pradesh.

Currently, the temperatures would see an uprising trend. However, May 11 onward, drop in temperature is expected. Initially, there will be more of dust storm and thunderstorm activity. By May 13, these activities would be accompanied by strong winds and light rain with moderate in few pockets.

Usually, simultaneous coverage of these many areas because of weather systems is an unseen phenomenon during pre-Monsoon season.
