New Delhi : The prevailing weather conditions in North India, particularly in states like Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Punjab, Jharkhand, Haryana, and Jammu and Kashmir, are under the scrutiny of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD). As dense fog blankets many regions, the IMD has issued a significant alert regarding potential rainfall in various states starting from January 30.
Delhi-NCR Weather Forecast
For the bustling metropolis of Delhi and its surrounding National Capital Region (NCR), the IMD predicts persisting dense fog in the mornings over the next few days. The grip of the cold wave continues to tighten its hold, resulting in reduced visibility due to fog. However, relief seems to be on the horizon as the forecast suggests a change in weather patterns with the possibility of rain from February 1 onwards, extending through February 2.
Relief for Uttar Pradesh Residents
Residents of Uttar Pradesh can anticipate some respite from the biting cold, as the IMD forecasts a gradual increase in both maximum and minimum temperatures across more than 40 districts. A modest rise of two to three degrees Celsius is expected in the coming days, providing relief from the severe cold spell.
Western Disturbance Impacting Bihar
The influence of a western disturbance is set to persist in Bihar until February 3, according to IMD projections. This weather system is likely to bring about a drop in temperatures, exacerbating the cold conditions prevalent in the region.
Anticipated Rain in Punjab
The agrarian state of Punjab is poised to experience a reprieve from the chilly weather, with the IMD forecasting light to moderate rainfall across several districts. This rainy spell is anticipated to extend until February 3, offering some relief to residents.

Rain and Snowfall in Uttarakhand
The picturesque landscapes of Uttarakhand are undergoing a transformation with intermittent snowfall in the hilly terrains. The IMD has forecasted light drizzles amidst the snowfall, with the possibility of both rain and snowfall in the mountainous regions.
Snowfall Predictions for Jammu and Kashmir
