The states of Punjab, Haryana, West Uttar Pradesh, North Rajasthan and Delhi that falls in the northwestern region of the Indo-Gangetic Plains have been recording some pre-Monsoon rains for the last two to three days.
In fact, as predicted by Skymet Weather, some regions of Punjab, Haryana and along with parts of West Uttar Pradesh and North Rajasthan had registered some light to moderate rains on the past day.
In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Tuesday, stations like Amritsar recorded 10 mm of rains, Aligarh 6 mm, Ludhiana 5 mm, Ambala 3 mm, Patiala 2 mm and Karnal and Moradabad recorded one mm of rains each. While the stations like Bareilly and Sri Ganganagar recorded some traces of rains.
These pre-Monsoon activities also led to a drop in both the day and night temperatures. Hence, the temperatures that were above normal at many places are now being recorded at below normal levels.
As per Skymet Weather, a cyclonic circulation is over central Pakistan and adjoining North Rajasthan and parts of Haryana. A trough is also extending from West Uttar Pradesh across Delhi.
Thus, the combined effect of all these weather systems was responsible for these pre-Monsoon activities. Additionally, these pre-Monsoon showers are likely to continue over the region for the next 24 hours, starting from today.
Along with the rains, gusty winds are also likely to occur over parts of Punjab, Haryana, West Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, and NCR.
Thereafter, we expect the weather to start clearing up by April 11 over Punjab and at a few parts of Haryana, West Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Delhi.
Moreover, the winds would also change their directions and would start blowing from the northwest direction. As these winds would be comparatively less humid and warmer in nature, they would reduce the humidity levels and increase the day temperatures.
