Rajasthan rain 2

March began on a rainy note for most parts of Northwest India. Few stations of Punjab, Haryana, and North Rajasthan recorded some light rainy traces between March 1 and 4. However, these rains escaped Delhi and NCR and the region continued to remain arid.

The reason for these rain and thundershowers over the region was the Western Disturbance affecting the Western Himalayan region. However, with the passage of the system, the weather once again became dry over almost the entire plains of Northwest India.

Now, Skymet Weather once again predicts some rain and thundershowers over the plains of North India in the recent days to come. A Western Disturbance is over North Pakistan and it has induced a cyclonic circulation over the central parts of Pakistan.

In the wake of this, along with the hills of North India, the plains of Northwest India may also receive rain and thundershowers at a few places. Most parts of West Punjab, West Haryana, and North Rajasthan on March 15 and over Northwest Uttar Pradesh on March 16.

Chandigarh, Ambala, Hisar, Churu, Sri Ganganagar, Moradabad, Bareilly Najibabad, Amritsar, and Gurdaspur are the expected regions that may witness rain and thundershowers. Delhi may escape these rains once again though the city may experience partly cloudy sky along with thunderstorms during this time.

As the pre-Monsoon has commenced and temperatures are increasing, therefore, chances of thunderclouds development have increased which may trigger dust storm in isolated pockets of Rajasthan as well.

These patchy rain and thundershowers and dust storm would help in reducing the day temperatures by 3-4 degrees. The weather would start clearing up by March 17 over entire Northwest India and thus, the temperatures would once again rise after March 17.
