In wake of this, cold day conditions have abated from most parts of the northwestern plains. These conditions will also subside from the isolated places that are still reeling under the cold weather.
Cold day conditions are declared when day temperature over certain places across the plains settle at 16°C or below.
Not only this, minimum temperatures are also expected to rise on account of back to back Western Disturbances affecting hilly region of North India.
According to Skymet Weather, minimum temperatures may rise marginally after the passage of Western Disturbance but chilly cold weather is not expected to make a comeback.
As per Mahesh Palawat, Chief Meteorologist at Skymet Weather, worst of winters is now over. Days will be sunny, leading to comfortable weather over most parts of the region.
Till first half of January, entire region was witnessing above normal day maximums around 20°C whereas first two weeks of the month are considered to be the coldest in terms of temperatures.
As we entered into the second half of January, scattered to isolated light rain over Central India and northern plains led to rise in levels of humidity. This in turn led to formation of dense fog and persisting fog cover did not let the maximum temperatures rise beyond 16°C.
