photoIndia will have icy winds over the north-west and central regions during the next two days. Day temperatures in both these regions will continue to rise during the weekend. There will be rain in East and North-East India as well as in the extreme southern parts and the Lakshadweep islands.
North, North-West and Central India will have winds from the western Himalayan region, so night temperatures will continue to fall for yet another couple of days. The minimum temperatures could drop by 2 degrees Celsius. The weather in India, just after bouts of western disturbances, leaves people of North-West and Central India shivering in low temperatures during winters.
Weather during the weekend could have been severe in north and central parts, but due to clear skies, the sun will continue to shine throughout the day, leading to a rise in maximum temperatures that subdue the cold. Owing to rising minimum temperatures over these regions, the winter chill, or the cold due to low night temperatures, will not be felt as much as it should. Despite of temperatures of around 5-8 degrees Celsius during the morning and evening hours, daytime will continue to be pleasant.
The eastern states of West Bengal, Sikkim, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh, and the adjoining parts of east Madhya Pradesh and Orissa during the next 24 hours will receive rain. These regions are receiving rain due to eastward movement of the western disturbance lagging over Jammu and Kashmir a few days ago. A cyclonic circulation associated with this weather system lies over Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. So, rain could be witnessed at one or two places in these states.
Southern part of Kerala and Tamil Nadu are experiencing a feeble easterly wave from the south-west Bay of Bengal. The wave will give light showers at one or two places during the next two days.
