Updated on March 28: Hot weather to continue in Delhi, Punjab, Haryana

As predicted by Skymet Weather, the temperatures of most parts of Northwest India have risen. In fact, the maximum of Delhi as on 2 pm today got arrested at 40ºC thus, leading to heatwave conditions.

On Tuesday, the maximum temperatures of Narnaul rose 7 degrees beyond the normal settling at 40ºC that is leading to heatwave conditions. Hisar recorded 39.1ºC, Faridabad also recorded 38.2ºC, Bhiwani 37.7ºC, Gurugram 37.4ºC, and Sirsa reeled under 36.8ºC.

The reason for the rising mercury levels remains the winds traveling from the southwest direction. During this time of the year, the southwesterly winds are comparatively warmer in nature as they travel from Central Pakistan and Balochistan where the temperatures are already soaring.

As of now also, the similar weather would prevail and only minor fluctuations in temperatures can be expected.

Updated on March 27: Temperatures to rise over Delhi, Punjab, Haryana

The northwestern plains inducing the states of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, North Rajasthan and West Uttar Pradesh have remained parched for more approximately 10 days now. The dry and warm weather conditions have led the temperatures to rise by 3-4 degrees Celsius above the normal levels over almost the entire plains.

On Monday also, the temperatures of most parts of Northwest India like Sri Ganganagar witnessed daytime high at 37.7ºC, followed by 37.5ºC, Hisar witnessed 36.6ºC and Delhi recorded its maximum at 36ºC.

As per Skymet Weather, the temperatures are likely to rise further by 2 degrees in the next two days. The reason for the rise in temperature is the change in the wind pattern.

The wind would start blowing from the southwest direction. During this time of the year, the southwesterly winds are comparatively warmer in nature as they travel from Central Pakistan and Balochistan where the temperatures are already soaring.

After 48 hours, the wind would once again change its direction from southwesterly to northerly/northwesterly. As these northwesterly winds would be coming from the hills of Western Himalayas where the temperatures are on the lower side, this would result in dipping the temperatures across most parts of Northwest India.

Though this drop in the temperatures would give a marginal relief, the mercury levels would continue to remain marginally above normal. Though pre-Monsoon season has commenced, we have to wait for some more days for any dust storm or thunderstorm activities to occur as any weather system is not anticipated over the region in the coming 4-5 days.
