Icy northerly winds are likely to dominate the weather in the northwestern plains, including the National Capital Region in the coming few days. No significant fog is expected during the next 48 hours. Central India will continue to see a fall in night temperatures during the next 48 hours. Rain is likely in Bihar within the next 24 hours and thereafter over sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Jharkhand, Orissa and Chhattisgarh.
The weather in Delhi will have northerly to northwesterly winds from the recent snowfall in the western Himalayan region. Night temperatures will come down further by 2 to 3 degrees in the region and the mornings will stay cool. The day will continue to stay clear and sunny. It will boost the day temperatures further in Delhi and other areas in northwest plains.
Rain will dry up in most of the northwestern parts of the country during the next 24 hours. The western disturbance is moving east-northeastwards from east Jammu and Kashmir but the tail of the weather system will still give light snowfall or rain in Uttarakhand.
The northerly to northwesterly winds have gained strength during the last 24 hours. Due to the winds, dense fog is not expected in Delhi. Other areas in the region will also be free of fog. But if the moisture level stays high with winds slowing a bit, fog may appear during the next 24 hours or thereafter.
While moving in an eastward direction, the weather system has already given record rain in Lucknow (approx. 55mm in 24 hours on 5 February). Parts of this western disturbance will now head towards Bihar, sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Orissa during the next two days. Accordingly the weather system will reach towards the northeastern states, where a few places in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh could receive rain.
Rainfall is also expected in central and southern peninsular region. This part is witnessing a mild confrontation of two winds from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Northwesterly to westerly winds from west the coast are taking a northerly turn after reaching central Maharashtra and north interior Karnataka, while southeasterly to easterly winds reaching these areas from the Bay of Bengal are turning into southerly winds. This collision of winds will give rain in central Maharashtra and interior Karnataka during the next two days.
The feeble easterly wave was responsible for rain in Kerala on Wednesday. The wave surge will continue to give rain in the southern parts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala during the next two days.
