North India – As winds have changed to dry northwesterlies, weather in entire north and northwest will be warm and dry this week. Skies will be mainly clear to sunny. Delhi has had the longest monsoon this year but now conditions are also looking favorable for the retreat of monsoon in next 48 to 72hours. Maximums are expected to rise by 1 to degrees and hover around 34 to 35 degrees. Nights will however, become cool and comfy with minimums falling by 2 to 3 degrees below normal and settling between 20 to 22 degrees.
East and Northeast India – Cyclone Phailin has lost its intensity but light to moderate rain will continue in Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal for the next two days. Though rain will continue till the end of the week in these states but the intensity will become very light. Skies will remain cloudy. Orissa is also expected to receive isolated light showers in the initial first two to three days of the week. Day temperatures which were maintaining six degrees below normal, will now start rising gradually and settle around 32 to 33 degrees. In the Northeast, scattered light rain will continue at Assam and Arunachal Pradesh for this entire week and maximums will be 2 to 3 degrees above normal at 33 degrees.
Central India – Weather in central India will be quite similar to north India. Dry northwesterly winds from the north will reach up to central India making the days dry and warm. Barring isolated pockets of Vidharbha and Madhya Maharashtra, where light rain is a possibility, no rain is expected to occur in entire central India. Forecasts suggest, monsoons could withdraw from central India by the end of this week. Maximums will start to rise but nights will be extremely pleasant, with minimums between 19 to 21 degrees.
