The plains of North India have been receiving on and off rains for the past couple of days. States of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and eastern and northern parts of Rajasthan are the ones being affected by rains.
Now, more rains are expected to continue over the aforementioned areas. In fact, it looks like a rainy week is on the cards for the northern plains of India.
The third low pressure area has become well marked and is expected to cross the coast and will cover the eastern parts, subsequently its weakened system or a remnant of the system will reach North India. Along with this, the system is also expected to pull the Monsoon trough towards itself. Thus, the combination of this system and the oscillation of the Monsoon trough will cause rainfall activities over the region.
This system will take at least four to five days to reach the northern plains. The current rainfall over the northern parts of the country has been occurring due to the remnants of the previous system still hanging around, a circulation is still over Delhi. Thus, it will take about four days for the present system to act in tandem with the Monsoon trough and the circulation, resulting in continuation of Monsoon rains.
These rains will continue with a rainy week in sight for Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and Northern and eastern parts of Rajasthan. Along with this, rains will also be active over the hills of North India including parts of Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh. These rains will vary in intensity and be on and off in nature.
The possibility of heavy rains, cloudburst incidents, and even flash floods over the hills cannot be ruled out.
