Temperatures in Delhi are likely to remain stable during the next two days. Rain will continue in Jammu & Kashmir and Uttarakhand during the next 24 hours. Showers are also expected in west Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha, Telangana, Marathwada and south Karnataka in the central and Peninsular India. Northeast will continue to get rain along with sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim during the next 48 hours.
Day Temperatures in Delhi are above normal and they would remain stable between 32 and 35 degrees during the next two to three days. In coming days, sky will be partly cloudy in Delhi that will not let out the heat from the atmosphere and will keep the day temperatures above normal (29.2ºC). Frequent invasion by the Western Disturbances in north India this year have brought clouds at regular intervals and kept the heat trapped within the atmosphere. Delhi may experience thunderstorms on 23rd of March.
Northerly to northeasterly winds will keep night temperatures in Delhi stable as they will not let the warmer winds dominate the region during the next two days and thereafter as well. Night temperatures may rise by 2 degrees during the approach of Western Disturbance but as and when it leaves, cool winds will again bring temperatures down by the same degree.
Weather in Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand will have rain and snow in coming days. Rain would be observed at one or two places in Jammu & Kashmir and Uttarakhand during the next 24 hours. A Western Disturbance lies over Jammu & Kashmir and will move away eastwards in the next 24 hours.
Intensity of rain and snow will increase thereafter and they would spread to larger areas of Jammu & Kashmir during the period from 22nd to 24th of March. A strong Western Disturbance is expected over Jammu & Kashmir from 23rd of March onwards.
Showers are also expected in Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha, Telangana, south interior Karnataka during the next 24 hours as a low pressure area runs from east Rajasthan to south interior Karnataka across central India.
In eastern and northeastern India a low pressure area that runs from Arunachal Pradesh to the Bay of Bengal persists. Southwesterly moist winds from the Bay of Bengal are reaching the northeastern states along this low pressure area and then blowing as easterly winds to bring rain in sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim. Rain would be observed at a few places in these regions during the next two days.
