Temperatures in north and northwestern India are likely to rise by 2°C in 24 hours. Fog will reduce in Uttar Pradesh but will continue in the Terai region in the state as well as over some parts of Bihar tomorrow. Rain and snowfall will be witnessed in Jammu & Kashmir and adjoining Himachal Pradesh in the next 24 hours. Rain will also occur at one or two places in east Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Chhattisgarh and Vidarbha within a day.
The Western Disturbance is expected to arrive over Jammu & Kashmir from north Pakistan so both day and night temperatures may scale a bit during the next 24 hours. A possible rise of 2°C is likely in the minimum and the maximum temperatures. Weather in Delhi will become less cold due to rise in morning temperature during this period.
The Western Disturbance will stop cool northerly winds during its stay in the region. Though weather in northwest parts of the country will not change much as the weather system is weak. Northwestern hills of Himalayas will receive light snowfall and rain under clouded skies and the weather will turn dry after the next 24 hours. This weather system will not have much effect in the plains of the region and cooler conditions will again resume from 25th of January onwards.
Cold wave is expected to continue in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar as northerly winds blowing here are left undisturbed. They will again bring down the temperatures a bit to sustain the cold wave during the next 48 hours. Fog is also likely to continue over Terai region in Uttar Pradesh and some parts of Bihar as they are witnessing a mix up northerly with easterly winds.
The same mix up of the winds will be taking place in central India. This is forming a cyclonic circulation over east Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Chhattisgarh as well as over Vidarbha region. So, rain is expected at one or two places in these parts during the next 24 hours.
