Rain in Delhi to diminish, drop in temperatures likely

Delhi rains

Delhi rains have been making their presence felt for some time now. February as it is has been a rainier month than usual.

In the last 24 hours, from 8:30 am on Wednesday, the Palam Observatory of Delhi has recorded 0.7 mm of rainfall. Its Adjoining areas of Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad and Faridabad also saw very light rains during this period.

According to Skymet Meteorologists, the reason for reduced intensity of rain in Delhi-NCR is the movement of the weather systems. Currently, the  Western Disturbance is moving eastwards, while its induced Cyclonic Circulation is over parts of Punjab and Haryana. A Trough is also extending from northern parts of Delhi upto the foothills of Uttar Pradesh.

Due to these systems now travelling eastwards, we do not expect any significant rains in Delhi and NCR region. However, the remnants of these systems may cause some isolated thundershower activities during late afternoon or evening hours over the city and its adjoining areas.

With rains taking a backseat, wind pattern will also undergo a change and strong southeasterly winds will begin to blow over the region. Moreover, clear sky with relatively warmer winds will lead to a marginal increase in the day temperatures.

However, after 24 hours, winds will once again change direction and blow as north-westerlies, thereby leading to a drop in day and night temperatures by close to 3℃.  Despite bright sunshine during the day, the chill factor will remain intact due to the presence of icy cold winds travelling from the snow clad mountains of the Himalayas.

These weather conditions will prevail in Delhi and NCR region for the next 48 hours. Thereafter, temperatures will stabilize and start increasing once again.
