Thick of winters arrive, chilly nights and cold days ahead for Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, UP

December 14, 2018 7:09 PM |

Delhi wintersAfter much delay, winters have finally set in over the plains of North India. Minimum temperatures have dropped by 4 to 8 degree Celsius during the last 48 hours. This sudden drop in minimum temperatures can be attributed to the fresh snowfall over Jammu-Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand in the last few days.

Since, last two days the chilly northerly winds straight from ice capped Himalayas are blowing over Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, North Rajasthan and parts of West Uttar Pradesh. Churu in North Rajasthan has witnessed a drop of around 8 degrees in minimum temperatures i.e. from 11.6°C to 4.2°C during the last two days. Similarly, night temperature of Hisar is now at 6.5°C with a drop of 6 degrees. Minimums across all places in the plains have come down to single digits that too on the lower side.

As per the weathermen, no fresh active Western Disturbance is expected to approach as of now. Therefore, icy cold northerly winds will continue for the next few days. In wake of this, we can expect further drop in both the day and night temperatures.

We expect parts of Punjab, Haryana and North Rajasthan to even experience frost during the morning hours in the coming days. Moderate to dense fog is possible over parts of these states.

Frost conditions sometime damages standing crops and the only remedy is to irrigate the farm. But we don’t expect any widespread frost conditions and thus, there is not much danger to the crops as of now. With a little crop care, farmers may stay relaxed.
