The weather in India will have icy winds over northwest and central region during the next two days. Day temperatures in both these regions will continue to rise tomorrow and day after tomorrow. There will be rain in east and northeast India as well as in extreme southern parts and Lakshadweep Islands.
North, northwest and central India will have winds from Western Himalayan region so the night temperatures would continue to fall for yet another couple of days. The minimum temperatures could drop by 2 degrees. Weather in India, just after bouts of Western Disturbances, leaves people of northwest and central India shivering in low temperatures during winters.
Weather during the weekend could have been severe in north and central parts but due to open skies, sun continues to shine through out the day, leading to a rise in maximum temperatures that subdue the winter cold to dominate the weather. Owing to rising minimum temperatures over these regions, winter chill or cold due to low night temperatures will not be felt as much as it should. In spite of temperatures of around 5 to 8 degrees during the morning and the evening hours, daytime will continue to please.
Rain in India will be witnessed in eastern states of West Bengal, Sikkim, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and adjoining parts of east Madhya Pradesh and Orissa during the next 24 hours. These places are receiving rain due to eastward movement of the Western Disturbance lagging over Jammu & Kashmir few days ago. A cyclonic circulation associated with this weather system lies over Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. So, rain could be witnessed at one or two places in these states.
Extreme southern parts of the country, south Kerala and Tamil Nadu are experiencing a feeble easterly wave from southwest Bay of Bengal. The wave will give light showers at one or two places during the next two days.
