The Indian Meteorological Department has issued heavy rain alert on Tuesday (26 November 2019) over Tamil Nadu, Puducherry & Karaikal along with thunderstorm due to the Western Disturbance above mean sea level.  On the other hand, thunderstorm/hailstorm accompanied with lightning at isolated places is likely over Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab and Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi on 26th & 27th November, says IMD( Indian Meteorological Department) in its latest forecast.  Dense fog is very likely to hover at isolated pockets over Odisha and South Assam & Meghalaya during the morning hours.

“The Western Disturbance as a trough between 3.1 & 4.5 km above mean sea level runs roughly along Long. 65°E to the north of Lat. 30°N and induced cyclonic circulation lies over West Rajasthan and adjoining Pakistan between 1.5 & 2.1 km above mean sea level”, says the latest forecast.  Under its influence, thunderstorm/hailstorm accompanied by lightning at isolated places is likely over the above-mentioned places.

Meanwhile, rains are all set to re-appear over Delhi- NCR area owing to the Western Disturbance over Jammu and Kashmir with its induced Cyclonic Circulation over Haryana and adjoining area. The air quality of the national capital improved compared to the last week.

The meteorologists at Skymet have predicted patchy rain in Delhi and its adjoining areas of Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad, and Faridabad today. There are also chances of one or two intense localized spells.

As per Skymet's report, the Western Disturbance would move away by November 28, and the effect of its induced Cyclonic Circulation would also fade, leading to clear weather conditions. But, the cloudy sky is likely to persist on November 28 as well.

Maximum temperatures were reported appreciably above normal (3.1°C to 5.0°C) at isolated places over West Uttar Pradesh while minimum temperatures were markedly above normal (5.1°or more) at a few places over West Madhya Pradesh and West Uttar Pradesh.
