Around November 8, minimum temperatures over both these states were recorded below normal by 2℃-3℃ and nights were much cooler.
There was a feeling among masses that it’s finally the time to say hi to winters.But soon after ,dry and cold north westerly winds got replaced by warm-humid easterly and south easterly winds and temperatures once again started rising.

During the last 24 hours , scattered rains have occurred over North Punjab and parts of Haryana leading to 2℃-3℃ drop in day temperatures.
Currently, the ongoing Western Disturbance over Jammu and Kashmir is expected to move away and cold and dry winds from snow clad mountains Himalayas.
Consequently, day and night temperatures will fall across these states around November 16. Minimums will drop by 3℃-5℃ while maximums by 1℃-2℃ between November 16-18.
Thus, mornings and nights will become cool and light woolens will be required.
