The India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasts the onset of new rain and snow showers today in regions of North India.

Due to a severe Western Disturbance over Afghanistan, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasts rain and snowfall in portions of northern India on Monday.

The weather department’s advisory for January 30 projected widespread precipitation throughout Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, and West Uttar Pradesh, and light precipitation over Delhi.

The Western Disturbance is an extratropical weather phenomenon that starts in the Mediterranean Sea and provides precipitation to the northwestern regions of the Indian subcontinent.

The maximum temperature in the nation’s capital dropped to 17.2 degrees Celsius on Sunday, which is five degrees below average for this time of year. The weather forecast for Delhi today calls for temperatures between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius, cloudy skies, light rain, and thunderstorms.

As the cold wave intensifies in the northwestern regions of India, dense morning or evening fog is possible over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, and Delhi on January 30, according to an IMD statement.

In the meantime, the weather agency has predicted a 2-3 degree Celsius increase in minimum temperatures over East India during the next two days, followed by a 2 to 4 degree Celsius decrease. Monday will likely bring isolated patches of dense fog to Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, and Tripura.

An official from the MeT department reported on Sunday that parts of Rajasthan had 10 to 30 mm of precipitation and a minor drop in temperature over the previous 24 hours. Rainfall and dense fog are predicted to persist through Monday.

Yesterday, Punjab and Haryana suffered from frigid weather, with Muktsar recording 2 degrees Celsius and Chandigarh 8.8 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, the minimum temperature in Ludhiana and Amritsar settled at 6.3 and 6.2 degrees Celsius, respectively.

According to the IMD advisory, minimum temperatures in Gujarat and Maharashtra are expected to drop by 2 to 4 degrees Celsius.

On Monday, the IMD forecasts stormy weather with wind speeds reaching 40-45 kph over the southeast and southwest of the Bay of Bengal and the south Andaman Sea due to the formation of a low pressure over the Bay of Bengal. It has also issued a warning to fisherman not to enter the water.
