Weather News: Rainfall is expected throughout northwest India, including Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its latest bulletin. 

Rainfall in Delhi-NCR

"Light/moderate rainfall is very likely over Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh from February 2 to 4," it stated. 

On February 3, the IMD predicts an isolated hailstorm over Punjab, Haryana, and northwest Uttar Pradesh. 

Rainfall is expected to fall as a result of an interaction between mid-tropospheric south-westerlies connected with the Western Disturbance and lower level south easterlies from the Bay of Bengal. 

According to the IMD, an active Western Disturbance will most certainly strike northwest India from February 2. 

"On February 3, an induced cyclonic circulation is expected to form across southwest Rajasthan and the surrounding area. Furthermore, moisture feeding from the Arabian Sea to northwest India at lower and middle tropospheric levels is expected on February 2 and 3 "According to the weather service. 

Apart from that, another Western Disturbance is expected to hit the Western Himalayan Region on February 6. 

According to the IMD, light isolated rainfall and snowfall is expected over Jammu-Kashmir-Ladakh-Gilgit-Baltistan Muzaffarabad over the next three days. 

Surface winds (speed 15-25 kmph) are expected to blow over Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh for the next two days as a result of the Western Disturbance. 

The national capital had a clear sky on Sunday, with a minimum temperature of 7 degrees Celsius and a maximum temperature of 22 degrees Celsius. 

Meanwhile, its residents continued to breathe polluted air, as the Air Quality Index (AQI) in Delhi was 212 for PM10 and 122 for PM2.5. 

Since the PM10 level was on a high scale, the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR) issued a health advisory recommending sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion and heavy outdoor work. 

"Air quality is acceptable for the general public but moderate health concern for sensitive people," it said. The PM2.5 level was under the 'very poor' category.
