Punjab on heavy rain alert for next 48 hours, scattered showers likely in Haryana

May 24, 2019 8:51 AM |

Rain in Punjab and Haryana

Scattered rains were observed over many parts of Punjab and Haryana during the last 24 hours. The reason for these rains can be attributed to a Western Disturbance is over the Western Himalayas that has induced a Cyclonic Circulation over central parts of Pakistan and adjoining Punjab.

As reiterated by Skymet Weather, whenever two strong systems combine, they move in tandem which results in heavy rains for a prolonged period.

As these systems are expected to persist for some more time, we expect a fresh spell of rain and thundershower activities in many parts of Punjab on Friday as well as Saturday.

Several places like Patiala, Ludhiana, Moga and Amritsar are expected to record heavy rain and thundershower activities today. Scattered rains are expected over remaining parts of the state.

On the contrary, good rain and thundershowers will be observed in few parts of Haryana during this time, wherein the residents of the places such as Karnal, Kurukshetra and Hisar will see good rains.

In the wake of all these weather activities, maximums of these states will witness a drop and are expected to stay below normal for at least next two to three days.

By Sunday, as the Western Disturbance will move away eastwards, its induced Cyclonic Circulation will also fade away. Thus, weather will gradually start clearing up from both the states.

Once the weather finds clearance, wind direction will also change. Dry and hot north-westerlies will take over the region, resulting in significant increase in the temperatures. Maximums that are at present settling below normal, will again crawl back to their normal and may increase even further.

In fact, isolated pockets of Haryana may come under the grip of heat wave conditions by May 27 onward.

According to Skymet Weather, this will be the last spell of pre Monsoon activities over both the states. Post this spell, only feeble weather systems will develop which would not have much impact over the plains of North India. Thus, weather over Punjab and Haryana will remain dry and hot until May 31.

According to our Weathermen, “It will be then in the first week of June, when any prominent weather system would develop. However, as of now, it is difficult to predict the intensity of rains”.
