“A western disturbance such as a cyclonic circulation is over northern Pakistan and its surroundings with a depression (low pressure line) at the top. The induced cyclonic circulation is found over eastern Rajasthan and its environs at lower tropospheric levels. There is a high moisture incursion from the Arabian Sea over the northwest and adjacent central India, which is likely to continue for the next two days. The confluence of winds from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal at the lowest tropospheric levels over central India is likely for the next three to four days, ”IMD said in its evening forecast bulletin on Saturday.
Widespread light to moderate rain or snowfall is likely to occur in the western Himalayan region through Sunday and the same will decline significantly thereafter. “Isolated very heavy rainfall or snowfall is very likely over Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Gilgit-Baltistan-Muzaffarabad and Himachal Pradesh on 8 January. 9, “added the newsletter.
Widespread rains in Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and western Uttar Pradesh are also likely to continue, IMD said, adding that it will subside from Sunday.

M Mohapatra, CEO of IMD, said Delhi has already seen moderate rains due to the ongoing rainstorm.
“Now gradually the rain will decrease in the western parts of Punjab and Haryana. There was widespread snowfall over Jammu and Kashmir on Friday. Heavy rains are now expected over Madhya Pradesh and neighboring Uttar Pradesh. The western disturbance that caused rains in northwestern India is expected to gradually move eastward and cause showers and thunderstorms there, ”Mohapatra said.
There were two WDs in close succession that caused a prolonged wave of rain in northwestern India, he added. “The impact was greater due to the incursion of humidity from the Arabian Sea. Over central India, we expect a confluence of winds from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, so there may be heavy and widespread rains over Madhya Pradesh. As the WD recedes, the very cold north winds blowing from the snow-covered Himalayas will lower minimum temperatures by 4-6 degrees in northwestern India. “
