The Western Disturbance which is currently affecting the hills of North India has induced a cyclonic circulation over North Rajasthan. Due to the combined effect of both these weather systems, scattered rain and thundershower activities occurred over northern districts of Punjab and Haryana such as Ambala.
Now we expect rain and thundershowers to continue in parts of Punjab and Haryana. In fact, isolated dust storm activity may occur over few parts of these states. Rain intensity will be more over the northern parts of both these states.
Districts like Pathankot, Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Amritsar, Kapurthala, Tarn Taran, Rupnagar, Jalandhar, Shahid Bhagat Singh Nagar in Punjab and Chandigarh, Panchkula, Ambala, Yamunanagar, Karnal and Kurukshetra in Haryana will be getting rain and thundershower activities during the next 24 hours.
Rest parts of Punjab and Haryana may also witness spell of dust storm followed by thunderstorm and light rainfall activity.
In the wake of these weather activities, both day and night temperatures over most places of Punjab and Haryana will drop and bring some relief from the ongoing hot weather conditions.
April 27 onwards, as the weather systems will move away eastwards, the weather conditions in Punjab and Haryana will once again become dry and very warm. Temperatures will also start rising.
These on and off pre-Monsoon activities are expected to continue over the northwestern plains including Punjab and Haryana from time to time, as whenever a Western Disturbance will affect the Western Himalayas, its effect will also be seen over the northern plains.
