Winters in India

People staying in the northern region, particularly in the northwest part of the country have already started receiving the wintry feel especially during the early morning and night hours. A significant drop in the morning and night temperatures are also witnessed though days are comparatively warm.

Due to frequent change in the wind direction and effect of Western Disturbances, entire North India is witnessing ups and downs in minimums since last many days. However, till date, heavy snowfall has not occurred over Western Himalayas which is why the northwesterly winds, are not as cold as they should have been.

Though now, another Western Disturbance is expected to approach Jammu & Kashmir which is scheduled to make an onset on November 29. This weather system is foreseen to give scattered rain and snow over the hilly terrains between November 30 and December 1.

After the passage of this weather system, northerly winds are also likely to commence thereby reducing the temperatures over Punjab, Haryana, north Rajasthan, Delhi and parts of west Uttar Pradesh.

During last 24 hours, minimum temperatures recorded in Delhi was 13.8°C, minimums recorded in Gurgaon and Faridabad were 14.4°C and 14.1°C respectively, Amritsar recorded 8.6°C, Chandigarh 10.7°C, Kapurthala 7.8°C and Pathankot witnessed the minimums settling at 9.4°C.

Moreover, a gradual decrease in both maximum and minimum temperatures particularly after December 1 is also forecasted. Till then, not much fluctuations in day and night temperature is expected.

However, due to continuous flow of dry and cold northwesterly winds, minimums may drop by one or two degrees during next 24 hours. But due to approach of a fresh Western Disturbance, wind direction may change leading to marginal increase in minimums.

So, it can be said that day and night minimums will start dropping during the first week of December only. Moreover, during next two to three days, shallow fog in parts of Punjab and Haryana, particularly during morning hours, can be expected.
