Pleasing weather conditions are likely over plains of North India, extendable beyond this week. Both, day and night temperatures will stay in the comfort range. No extreme and diverse conditions are expected for the next about 10 days, to start with.
Most parts of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, North & East Rajasthan and West Uttar Pradesh received light to moderate rainfall over the last 2 days. Isolated places recorded heavy rainfall, particularly over Rajasthan where damaging hailstorm struck some areas over southern and eastern parts of the state. Weather conditions have since improved over all these parts.
In the wake of the system, mostly clear sky and pleasant weather conditions are expected for the next one week or even more. High levels of moisture may induce moderate to dense fog at few places. However, the strong winds will disperse foggy and obscured conditions to make way for sunshine in the forenoon hours and later.
Late night and early morning hours will remain chilly with minimum temperatures hovering in single digit at most places over Punjab, West Haryana and North Rajasthan. Delhi/NCR and contiguous parts of Haryana and West Uttar Pradesh will remain close to double digit temperatures. Strong breeze will increase the chill factor during early hours of the day. Fair amount of sunshine giving a feel of February and the mercury levels rising to mid 20's will become a norm. Brief interruptions on account of western disturbances remain a challenge. These westerly systems are little more frequent in February, albeit with shorter duration each time.
