Rain in Delhi likely on December 11-12, no relief from pollution

Cloudy weather in Delhi and NCR

Delhi has been battling prolonged dry spell for over a month now, resulting in warm winters and high pollution levels. However, weather has now shown some changes and we can expect some weather activity over the national capital.

According to Skymet Weather, a fresh Western Disturbance is seen over Jammu and Kashmir that has also induced a cyclonic circulation over parts of Rajasthan and adjoining Punjab and Haryana region. As a result, we can expect partly cloudy to cloudy sky, with chances of light rain over the northwestern plains including Delhi-NCR.

We have been constantly saying that rains are ultimate solution for any major relief from the ongoing Delhi pollution. However, we are afraid that these likely rains would not be able to bring any relief from deteriorating air quality, which would continue to settle in ‘very poor’ category.

As per weathermen, intensity of rains would be light and would also be patchy in nature. Thus, these showers would not be able to wash away the pollutants from the atmosphere. Until and unless, there are heavy and continuous rains, we would not see any improvement in the pollution status.

Further, the affecting weather systems have also obstructed the flow of cold north-westerlies and are now replaced with warm and humid easterly or southeasterly winds.

In wake of this, minimum temperatures in Delhi that have dropped to 8.8°C on Monday morning, are likely to rise during the next two days due to persistent cloud cover.

By December 13, we expect Western Disturbance and induced cyclonic circulation would move away, once again paving way for normal flow of cold northwesterly winds. However, this time, these winds would be much chillier in nature as they would be travelling from the Western Himalayas that would have also recorded fresh snow and rains.

It is during this, winters would tighten its grip over northwestern plains and December 14 onwards, minimum temperatures would record significant drop. The night temperatures are most likely to plunge to new levels, at least to 6°C by December 18.

Pollution might also witness marginal decrease but again no major relief is likely because winds will not be very strong.
