After battling hot weather for long, Haryana has now got some relief with pre-Monsoon rains making an appearance. For the last 48 hours, several parts of the state have been recording light to moderate rain and thundershowers. Few areas have also recorded some heavy spells.
In span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Friday, Rohtak has recorded 11 mm of rain, Sonipat 5 mm and Zafarpur 4 mm.
At present also, weather conditions have become conducive for more spells of pre-Monsoon activities. According to Skymet Weather, rain bearing clouds have been hovering over the region and showers may begin anytime soon.
Places like Bhiwani, Fatehabad, Gurgaon, Hisar, Jhajjar, Jind, Mahendragarh, Mewat, Rewari, Rohtak and Sonepat, and Ambala districts of Haryana are likely record rains during the next 2 hours.
These showers will also be accompanied with squally winds and few areas might even witness dust storm.
These rains can be attributed to the Western Disturbance moving across East Jammu and Kashmir, which has induced a cyclonic circulation over Central Pakistan and adjoining Punjab. Besides this, a trough is also extending from this system up to Northeast India across the northwestern plains including Haryana.
According to Skymet Weather, these rains and thundershowers are likely to continue for the next 24 hours, particularly during the early morning hours. Thereafter, as the trough will oscillate northwards, the weather activity will reduce but intermittent rains may continue.
In wake of these showers, mercury will now settle below 40°C, leading to comfortable day. However, increase in levels of humidity will rise the discomfort.
