Rains to Respite Parched North India in February: Scattered Showers from February 1st:

January 27, 2024 1:05 PM |

Parched fields and dust-laden skies in North India may finally sigh in relief as scattered rains are expected to grace the region starting February 1st. While January has remained largely dry, February promises a much-needed sprinkle over Punjab, Haryana, parts of West Uttar Pradesh, and possibly even Delhi.

The culprit behind this change? A series of western disturbances approaching the Western Himalayas. Strong enough to induce heavy snowfall and significant rain in the hills, these disturbances will stir up a welcome cyclonic circulation over North India, paving the way for scattered showers.

Expect the rain to gradually increase in both spread and intensity over the first week of February. Rain may extend to parts of North Rajasthan, offering respite to dry landscapes. Short breaks between rain spells are anticipated, but the overall forecast paints a picture of a wetter North India than the preceding dry month.

While the potential for isolated hailstorms adds a note of caution, the overall forecast promises a welcome break from the dryness and a much-needed boost for agriculture and water availability in the region. So, get ready to trade your dust masks for umbrellas as North India gears up for a taste of rainy February.
