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.
