Winter is slowly making its presence felt in North India. The fog which started since early this week has given some respite to the people during the weekends. Yesterday Delhi finally saw a clear weather. The general visibility improved to 400 meters in the morning at Delhi, Amritsar, Lucknow and Patna airport.
Situation has improved in North India barring few places in North Punjab. Down south, Bangalore experienced the first fog of the season yesterday morning.
Sun is appearing for a very short span of time in the late hours of the day which is not actually any difference to the situation, and people can be seen sitting around the fire. Those who are traveling in such conditions are making sure that they are properly prepared to face chilly winters for wearing jackets, mufflers, gloves, and headscarfs.
It seems that in coming days there will be no relief from the winter as western disturbances are going to make the situation worse. A fairly good western disturbance is expected to arrive on today's night night and can affect parts of Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi/NCR. This will make plains of North India to receive the first winter rain.
At present, minimum temperatures are definitely on the higher side, about 3 to 4 degrees above normal. However, the fresh Western disturbance will bring down the minimum temperature below normal level.
Fog in North India which has been disrupting day to day life since 16th of December, will clear out with this system. The situation will improve in places which have been experiencing dense fog including Delhi, Amritsar, Lucknow, Allahabad, Patna and Agra. But this respite will last only for 48 hours.
