photoA strong western disturbance over Pakistan will move over Jammu and Kashmir during the next 48 hours and will affect the weather in the northwest hills and the plains. Snowfall is expected to resume over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand and would possibly last till Tuesday next week. The plains in the region will also receive rain. Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, west Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan could even see hailstorms and heavy rains during this period.
The weather in Delhi will also become partly cloudy to cloudy at times, leading to drop in day temperatures. Due to restricted northwesterly winds, the minimum temperature will rise in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, west Uttar Pradesh along with the capital New Delhi.
Fog will hit Delhi and the surrounding northwest plains during the next 24 to 36 hours till the effect of the western disturbance reaches the region. Winds have slowed down sharply in the region and moisture feed from easterly to southeasterly winds along with low minimum temperatures will continue to cause moderate to dense fog during the period. Rise in night temperatures will provide relief from fog Saturday onwards.
The prevailing foggy conditions over east Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, sub-Himalayan West Bengal will continue for the next 24 to 48 hours. But by Sunday, the arrival of a western disturbance will benefit the region as winds will become westerly and raise the minimum temperature a bit. Dense fog hours would lessen after the next 48 hours in these parts.
Heavy to very heavy snowfall is expected in Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand at the start of next week. Snowfall that resumes on Saturday will first be experienced at a few places and then lash most of the hills in these states. The weather in these places will start to become partly cloudy to cloudy and day temperatures will drop but due to the cut-off northerly winds, night temperatures will rise by up to 3 degrees.
