Rain reduces in north India; Mercury to rise sharply

August 19, 2013 12:57 PM |

After good showers for the entire last week, rain may once again become patchy in Delhi and whole north and northwest India. Weathermen tell us that the monsoon trough which was oscillating in the plains of north India, giving light to moderate rain at many places, will now move away and oscillate towards south of Delhi. And while this happens, Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, north and west Rajasthan will receive patchy rain between 5mm to 20mm at some places for next 48 hours. Due to decrease in rain, mercury levels could therefore rise sharply by 2 to 4 degrees and may reach up to 35⁰C in some pockets. Besides, the sun will be harsh towards the noon and high humidity levels will bother you throughout the day as winds will be very light.

On the other hand, hills of north India will also witness decrease in rain with rise in mercury levels for the next two days. However, the weather will still be pleasant if not so cool. Rain in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand will be mainly light to very light. Jammu and Kashmir could be mostly dry.

Meanwhile, the approach of a fresh western disturbance in the next 48hours will not allow the weather in north India to go completely dry. As the monsoon trough lines merge with the western disturbance, rain will continue, though less in intensity. “East Rajasthan will be the only part in north India to witness an increase in rain as the low pressure system which is presently at Jharkhand is likely to move westwards, towards west Rajasthan, giving widespread moderate rain there”, says Mahesh Palawat, Head of the forecasting team at Skymet Weather.
