“The combination of moisture from the rain caused by the western disturbance and northerly winds are causing the formation of a layer of low clouds. Due to lack of sunshine, day temperatures will be low for the next two days. Thereafter, northerly winds will pick up to about 20 kmph when a cold wave is likely between January 26 and 29. That will be the first cold wave of this January. So far, January has been marked by higher night temperatures and very low day temperatures over northwest India,” said R K Jenamani, senior scientist, National Weather Forecasting Centre, IMD.

Under the influence of a fresh western disturbance from January 29, light isolated to scattered rainfall or snowfall is likely in the Western Himalayan region till January 31. Dense to very dense fog conditions in the night and morning hours are likely in isolated pockets in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh.
