Winters knocking doors, mercury to drop across Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan

November 5, 2018 6:09 PM |


The northwestern plains of the country have been experiencing dry and warm weather for the entire October. However, the northern parts of Punjab and Haryana witnessed scattered rains on November 1 and 2.

These showers have been on account of an active Western Disturbance that had given moderate to heavy snowfall over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.

However, the system has now moved away. As a result, rains have now receded from Northwest India. Although weather has gone dry but the passage of Western Disturbance has paved way for icy cold northwesterly winds blowing from the snow-clad mountains.

This has led to drop in both the day and night temperatures across northwestern plains of North Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh.

According to Skymet Weather, these winds are expected to continue for the next 3-4 days. Thus, we can expect further drop in the temperatures.

Talking about the current situation, many parts of Punjab and Haryana are already experiencing maximum temperatures below normal by 3-5 degree-Celsius. Along with this, Delhi-NCR is also experiencing below normal day temperatures by 1-2 degree-Celsius. But the minimums are almost near to normal at almost all the places. Today morning, Delhi-NCR was engulfed with a dense blanket of smog.

As per Skymet Weather, there has been a significant intrusion of stubble burning which polluted Delhi and it’s adjoining areas. Contribution of stubble burning is estimated to be around 24%. The smoke got carried with the north-westerlies and led to a significant rise in pollution level. The AQI crossed the mark of 800 today morning.

In the coming 48 hours, we can expect mercury to drop by couple of degrees over entire northern plains. This would happen due to continuous flow of dry and cold winds from the northwest direction.

On the other hand, minimum temperatures might rise marginally post November 8 due to a fresh Western Disturbance, which would then obstruct the flow of cold westerly winds.
