Due to the presence of an induced Low-Pressure Area over South Rajasthan and adjoining Pakistan yesterday, isolated rain and thundershower activity was observed over Jaisalmer and adjoining areas. The city of Jaisalmer recorded 5 mm of rain. However, mainly dry weather prevailed over Punjab and Haryana. Moderate fog and drop in minimums was also observed.
The Western Disturbance is moving across East Jammu and Kashmir and the induced Cyclonic Circulation now lies over West Rajasthan and is likely to move Northeastwards. In the next 24 hours, we expect rain and thundershower at many places over Punjab, Haryana and a few places over Northwest and Northeast Rajasthan. The rain intensity will be mainly light over Punjab with one or two moderate spells. This activity is expected up till tomorrow morning. Thereafter rain and thunder-shower activity will stop, but clouding will persist.
Skymet Weather recently issued alerts for the three of these states, saying-
A spell of rain and thunder shower with moderate wind likely at some places over Alwar, Bharatpur, Bikaner, Churu, Dausa, Ganganagar, Hanumangarh, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jhunjhunun, Jodhpur, Nagaur and Sikar districts of Rajasthan during next 18-24 hours
Light to moderate rain and thunder shower at some places over Ambala, Bhiwani, Charkhi Dadri, Faridabad, Fatehabad, Gurgaon, Hisar, Jhajjar, Jind, Kaithal, Karnal, Kurukshetra, Mahendragarh, Mewat, Palwal, Panchkula, Panipat, Rewari, Rohtak, Sirsa, Sonipat, Yamunanagar, Amritsar, Barnala, Bathinda, Faridkot, Fatehgarh Sahib, Fazilka, Firozpur, Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar, Kapurthala, Ludhiana, Mansa, Moga, Muktsar, Pathankot, Patiala, Rupnagar, Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar, Sangrur, Shahid Bhagat Singh Nagar and Tarn Taran districts of Punjab and Haryana during next 24 hours
Due to the increase in clouding over these areas, minimum temperatures are expected to further rise by one to three degree Celsius over these areas, while day temperatures will drop by two to three degree Celsius. The major cities like Ambala, Panchkula, Amritsar and Ludhiana may witness increase in pollution levels.
But as the system moves away, north-westerly cool winds are expected to commence which will bring the temperature down after a gap of 24 hours.
