Rains in Amritsar, Chandigarh and Delhi, hailstorm to follow

February 13, 2019 6:58 PM |

Rain in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi

After making a poor start in January, the Northwest Plains are now having an extended and intensive weather activity which has spilled over to the month of February. The rains till date have almost touched the normal mark and with chances of rain there is a possibility that the values might just exceed. At present the Western Disturbance is over North Pakistan and adjoining Jammu and Kashmir with its induced Cyclonic Circulation over Pakistan and adjoining North Rajasthan.

Till date Amritsar has witnessed 20 mm of rains against the normal of 22 mm, Ludhiana has recorded 44 mm of rains against the normal of 28.1 mm and Delhi has recorded 30 mm of rains against the normal mark of 20 mm. Soon, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and NCR will easily cross the mark of normal with the help of rains initiating tonight.

According to weather experts at Skymet, the frequency of Western Disturbances is more and are of shorter duration during this month. February this year has been witnessing Western Disturbances over the hills with the combination of induced Cyclonic Circulations over the plains. Since these two systems move in tandem, they tend to reinforce and strengthen each other really well.

The rainiest day for the plains till date was February 8, wherein Ludhiana recorded 37 mm of rains. As per the records, weather activity on February 8 was much more intense in comparison to the one on January 22. The coming spell will be fairly strong. Plains have had four quiet days, nothing has happened. Soon, the lull will be over. Rains would commence by tonight, which is expected to peak tomorrow, i.e. February 14 and would continue till February 15. On February 16, rains would be light over Punjab and Haryana and by then the weather would start clearing up in Delhi and NCR.

According to meteorologists, there will be a very short breather of three days before the commencement of another spell. Another weather activity will be seen around February 18 which would become prominent on February 19, peaking on February 20. The intensity would lower down on February 21 and by February 22, the rains would recede. This could possibly be the longest spell of this season. Isolated pockets would witness hailstorms during this period.

The Rabi crops would once again get affected, posing trouble to the farmers and agri-industry.
