India's Weather forecast for January 24

The national capital Delhi can expect thick fog and a rise of temperature by 3-4°C over the next 48 hours. In the wake of western disturbance, cold air will sweep again the plains of North India and reach Delhi and beyond. Fog and chill will be the highlights of the week amidst celebrations of Republic Day. No rainfall is expected on this festive day and these conditions will last for the rest of days in January, said Skymet Weather.

According to the IMD, very dense fog is when visibility is between 0 and 50 meters. In the case of dense fog, visibility is between 51 and 200 meters, moderate 201 and 500 meters, and shallow 501 and 1,000 meters. A fresh Western Disturbance affecting the western Himalayas is likely to provide some relief from the chill. The minimum temperature is expected to increase to 9 degrees Celsius by Sunday as a result of easterly winds and cloud cover.

There is also a possibility of rain and snowfall in the holy pilgrimage site of North India, Vaishno Devi. Significantly, the highest rainfall and snowfall can occur in Jammu and Kashmir in the mountainous regions. On January 24, the seasonal stir will be significantly reduced. Light to moderate rain and snowfall will continue at some places on 24 January. The weather is likely to be completely clear from 25 January.

“Easterly winds have already started blowing in the national capital. A cloud cover will further increase the minimum temperature on Saturday and Sunday," Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of the IMD's regional forecasting center, said.

Easterly winds are not as cold as northwesterly coming in from the snow-clad western Himalayas, while clouds trap some of the outgoing infrared radiation, increasing the minimum temperature. However, Srivastava said, the minimum temperature will again drop to four degrees Celsius by Monday.

“The WD will lead to widespread snowfall in the upper hills of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. Cold, dry winds from the snow-capped mountains will bring the mercury down to 4 degrees Celsius by Monday,” he said.

Weather is expected to remain dry in all places of Madhya Pradesh including Bhopal, Indore, Ujjain, Jabalpur, Mandla, Rewa, Sagar, Satna, Chhatarpur, Gwalior this whole week. From 24 and 25 January, day and night temperatures are expected to fall marginally. It is estimated that from January 24, cold winds will move from the north-east direction in most parts of Madhya Pradesh, due to which the temperature drop is possible. There will be sunshine in the day and the day will remain comfortable, but there is a possibility of persisting at night.
