A western disturbance is an extra-tropical storm that originates in the Mediterranean Sea, moves eastwards and causes rainfall and snowfall in northern India.
“The western disturbance is moving eastwards, carrying cold winds to central and western India. The humidity has dropped because a trough on either side of the coast has drawn in the moisture,” said VK Rajeev, director, India Meteoro-logical Department (IMD), western region. “The temperatures are likely to remain low for the next 48 hours and are expected to climb back up gradually.”
According to IMD, the minimum and maximum temperatures will be 15 degrees and 31 degrees Celsius on Monday.
