Since last few days, dusty and hot weather prevailed over Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and West Uttar Pradesh. In fact, the air quality worsened due to the prevalence of dust raising winds from Rajasthan and Pakistan region. With this, a blanket of dust haze had covered the northwestern plains.

As per Skymet Weather, a Western Disturbance is moving across Jammu and Kashmir region. It’s induced upper air cyclonic circulation lies over Central Pakistan and adjoining Punjab region. This circulation was responsible for the rains over eastern parts of Punjab and North Haryana.
