As predicted by Skymet Weather, since February 19 night, Delhi and its adjoining regions such as Noida, Greater Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad have been experiencing cloudy to overcast sky conditions.

During the early morning and morning hours on February 20, Delhi-NCR also witnessed light rainfall activity. In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Tuesday, Narela recorded 3 mm of rain, followed by Safdarjung Observatory and Aya Nagar 1.6 mm. Meanwhile, traces of rain were also observed over the Ridge region.

These rains have been attributed to the active Western Disturbance that lies over North Pakistan and adjoining Jammu and Kashmir, along with its induced cyclonic circulation over North Rajasthan adjoining Punjab region.

Now further also with the combined effect of both these weather systems, we expect rain and thundershowers to occur over most parts of Delhi-NCR. The sky over the national capital will remain mostly cloudy. In fact, thunderstorm activity accompanied with light hailstorm may also be a possibility over few areas.

Few spells of rain and thundershowers with strong gusty winds and isolated hailstorm activity will continue over Faridabad, Gurgaon, Jhajjar, Sonipat, Central, East, New Delhi, North, North East, North West Delhi, Shahdara, South, South East, South West, West Delhi, Gautam Buddha Nagar and Ghaziabad  of Delhi and NCR during next 48 hours.  

In the wake of rains and cloudy sky, day temperatures over the city and its nearby areas are expected to drop and may even settle somewhere around 20˚C. However, night temperatures will increase and settle 3˚C to 4˚C above normal.

We expect these rains to continue till tomorrow and thereafter decrease. Thus, we can say that peak activities will be observed during the next 24 hours and from tomorrow clearance will start taking places.
