February to kick off with fluctuating weather over Northwest India

The rain activities which were going on over the plains of Northwest India have now taken a back seat. This is because the Western Disturbance and its induced cyclonic circulation have moved away.

Now, dry and cold northwesterly air mass is affecting Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, North Rajasthan and West Uttar Pradesh. In wake of this, day and night temperatures have dropped by two to five degrees, marking the onset of winters over the region.

Weathermen at Skymet Weather are of the view that the weather will remain dry and cold winds will continue to prevail for more days over the region.

During the last 24 hours, many areas of Himachal Pradesh, particularly the higher reaches of the state have recorded some good snowfall activity. During the same time frame, very light rain occurred over Jammu and Kashmir.

Thus, we can say that temperatures will further fall by a few notches for another two to three days as the icy cold winds from the snow clad Himalayas are reaching the plains of Northwest India. Looking at these weather conditions, we can say that winters have marked its beginning as the cold nip in the air can now be felt during the morning and evening hours.
