The IMD is predicting thunderstorm activity, with wind speed reaching up to 60 kilometres per hour in Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh. In parts of Southern Peninsular, East and Northeast India, the weather office has warned about thunderstorm with gusty winds for Monday and Tuesday.
Delhi witnessed a brief spell of thunderstorm on Sunday evening, with wind speed reaching 107 kmph in the Safdarjung area. Thunderstorm activity on Monday and Tuesday, however, is likely to be less intense, senior officials at the IMD said. The western disturbance, which led to the severe weather activity in the northern part of the country, is expected to weaken Wednesday onwards.
“For the northern plains, the weather activity will weaken after Tuesday, but it will carry on for another day in the western Himalayan region,” said K Sathi Devi, head of national weather forecasting centre at the IMD. The IMD has also warned about thunderstorm accompanied with squall and hail for the western Himalayan region of Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh till Wednesday. Rajasthan has also been alerted of a dust storm that could occur on Monday and Tuesday.
Devi said there was no other western disturbance approaching immediately after, and the thunderstorm activity was likely to remain subsided after Wednesday.
