The India Meteorological Department (IMD) anticipates scattered to fairly widespread light to moderate rainfall in northern India, encompassing states such as Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, and Delhi. Thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds are expected to accompany the rain.

The IMD reported severe weather conditions observed over Northwest India on March 2, 2024. Although there will be no significant change in minimum temperatures over northwest India in the next three days, a subsequent decrease of 3-5 degrees Celsius is predicted.

The current weather patterns are influenced by a Western Disturbance, a cyclonic circulation over northwest Afghanistan, and a trough extending from this circulation to the Northwest Arabian Sea in the lower and middle tropospheric levels. High moisture feeding from the Arabian Sea to northwest India is expected to persist until Sunday.

In other positive news, the national capital recorded the best Air Quality Index (AQI) in 137 days. Strong and gusty surface winds, moving at a speed of 40-50 km/hour, contributed to improved air quality by filtering out pollutants. At 4 pm on Saturday, Delhi reported a 24-hour average AQI reading of 117 (moderate), marking the lowest since October 17, 2023, when it measured 89 (satisfactory).
