Weather Update, November 30: The influence of the continuous snowfall and rain in the Himalayan areas is clearly seen in the plains. Temperatures in North and Central India have begun to dip gradually as a result of chilly winds blowing from the highlands. People are feeling cold in the morning, evening, and at night. Fog has also covered many parts of the north region. Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department predicts a sharp drop in temperature across the country in the coming days.
Meteorological Department prediction
Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department has predicted rain and snowfall in the higher alpine portions of the Himalayas. Even today, there is a probability of rain and snowfall in the mountains of Gilgit-Baltistan, Muzaffarabad, Ladakh, Jammu-Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand, according to MID. Significantly, the mountainous sections of the Himalayas have been receiving occasional snowfall and rain for several days, resulting in a significant reduction in the region’s temperature. In several places, the temperature has dropped below zero, i.e. negative. As a result, individuals in these locations face numerous challenges.
Effect of snowfall
In addition, the effect of snowfall on the mountains can be seen in the plains. The cold has begun to spread across the plains. Temperatures are steadily falling in various sections of the country, including Delhi-NCR, North and Central India. According to the IMD, cold has grown in numerous states, including Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi, as a result of cold winds coming from the mountainous regions, and there is every likelihood of further cold in the coming days.
The Meteorological Department predicts that the minimum temperature in Delhi-NCR would be about 8 degrees Celsius for the coming week. Throughout this time, the cold will worsen at night while individuals will continue to benefit from intense sunlight during the day. In addition, the MID predicts that a cold wave will come in Delhi-NCR by mid-December. In addition, this year’s cold may break numerous records.
According to Skymet, a cyclonic circulation has formed over the southeast Bay of Bengal and adjacent locations. Another cyclonic circulation is also present over the Southeast Arabian Sea. As a result, rain is falling throughout the southern states.
The rainy season is still in effect in many southern states. The Meteorological Department has predicted rain in a number of states, including Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Puducherry, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, in this series.
New cyclonic circulation
A new cyclonic circulation is expected to form over the North Andaman Sea, according to the Meteorological Department. This will cause the weather in the nearby area to alter. In addition, the MID predicts that the minimum temperature in Odisha would drop by three to five degrees in the following four to five days.
Light to moderate rain is expected over several regions of coastal Karnataka, southern Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Lakshadweep, Manipur, and Mizoram, according to private weather forecasting organisation Skymet Weather. On the other hand, temperatures may fall somewhat during the day and night across the whole Northwest, Central, and East India. The Delhi and NCR air quality index will stay in the very low category.
