During the last two days, fairly widespread rain and thundershower occurred in many parts of the Northern Plains particularly Delhi-NCR, Punjab, Haryana and West Uttar Pradesh. Scattered rain was also witnessed in the northern parts of Rajasthan.
However, during the last 24 hours, rainfall activities have reduced in North Rajasthan but continues in parts of Haryana, Punjab and Delhi. The Western Disturbance is now moving away eastwards. Its induced Cyclonic Circulation is also moving over the foothills of the Himalayas. And a Trough is extending from Punjab up to Bihar across the northern parts of Uttar Pradesh.
In view of these systems, we expect rain to continue until today afternoon in some parts of Northwest Uttar Pradesh. Saharanpur, Muzzafarnagar and Nazibabad are some of the places in the state that might receive these rains.
On the other hand, there is no weather activity expected in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Delhi, Noida, Gurugram and Faridabad. By today evening, the weather will clear up from the Northern Plains.
Northwesterly winds blowing in many parts of Punjab and Haryana, has pulled down the minimum temperature in both the states. In fact, a few cities in Punjab, Haryana and North Rajasthan have already witnessed a drop of 5 to 7 degrees Celsius in the night temperature in the last 24 hours.
Tomorrow onward, Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh will also witness a drop in minimums by three to four degrees.
Meanwhile, we do not expect any significant Western Disturbance to approach the Western Himalayas for the next four to five days. Therefore the weather of entire Northern Plains will continue to remain dry and cold. Cold dry northwesterly winds will continue to blow in the Northern Plains. After 48 hours, a gradual increase in day temperature is likely due to bright sunshine and a clear sky. As winds will pick up pace, we do not expect any dense fog in the region for the next few days. Moderate to isolated dense fog might however appear tomorrow.
