Reason behind upcoming dry weather in North India

June 1, 2016 11:52 AM |


Pre Monsoon activities are expected to seize in the entire Northwest part of India and there seems no relief from the dry and hot climate for the next few days. Temperature of Delhi and other parts of North India will cross 40°C and will remain in lower 40's for another 4 to 5 days.

Since a last few days, the entire northwest part of the country including Delhi has been experiencing good rain-thundershower activities due to which the temperature was also slightly below normal. As per Skymet Weather, the main reason for this Pre-Monsoon spell was a Western Disturbance affecting the western Himalayas. An induced cyclonic circulation over central Pakistan and adjoining Punjab and Haryana is also the cause of these Pre-Monsoon thundershower activities.

Initially, due to a trough extending up to West Bengal across Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand, moisture incursion was taking place all along the trough line from Punjab to West Bengal causing light to moderate rain-thundershowers in this region.

Now this trough has shifted towards south of Delhi, running from Rajasthan to Odisha, due to which moist easterly winds been replaced by dry and hot winds from the west that are traveling from central Pakistan and Rajasthan. This will result in a reduction in moisture and in turn would increase the temperature. Hence, it can be concluded that the temperature in entire Northwest India including Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, north Rajasthan and parts of Uttar Pradesh would rise resulting in a dry weather. However, isolated dust storm activities cannot be denied.
