On saturday, Mumbai heated upto 32c (Colaba) and 33c (Scruz), and west coast cities also heated , with Ratnagiri showing 35.7c, and Panjim forecasted in vagaries. Aurangabad was 28c and Pune 30c... on expected lines. 

However, Delhi remained cold at a max of 15c, much lower than expected.

Islamabad was highest at 22c, with the low at 4c, and Karachi rose to 27c...

Its a holiday weekend, and how is the weather going to be ?

The west coast trough which had moved inland in the last week will weaken, and the Northern WD system will move away.
No WDs, no troughs, so what do we expect ? And an anti cyclone (High Pressure) in the upper air at 850 hp level sitting over the Central region for 3/4 days. MSLP also around 1020 mb around the core over NW India/adjoining Pakistan, and at 1018/1016 in Central India.
Dry weather almost throughout the entire India/Pakistan and Nepal region next 4 days.
Next major system in the region will be F-1, expected to be effective in Pakistan and India and Western Nepal. F-1 expected around 2nd February in Pakistan.

The Northern Plains will see NW winds, and a marginal rise in day temperatures, prompted by clear sunny skies. Delhi NCR will see Republic Day as hazy sunshine (but cold morning) and temperature range rising to  22c and lows at around 10c.

The Central Region of India will get the normal Easterlies, keeping the interiors of Maharashtra pleasantly cool at around 28/29c.

Wondering nobody is speaking about southern India complete lack of rains - most prominent being South east India - TN,Rayalseema,SE interior KAR - 3 years of drought - 85% defecient monsoon - negligible NEM monsoons - near desert like conditions. Next year also NEM may fail -is in any research being done by our Indian scientists?

2013 Intense rain excess MAHA, excess rains in central India - GUJ,RAJ.. 2014 are again receving rains. If we go past years TN used receive rains in JAN also (tail end NEM have stopped in oct itself!!! complete change in climate). Erstwhile dryness of GUJ/RAJ may vanish - become more wetter and greener.

@ SSET . I m in Bangalore from last 5 days.. I like the city.. Nice planned city with big roads and nicely divided areas in lane / cross roads & sector.. Also dense trees covered on both side of road/ lanes.. Not seen garbage on road side.. So how can it be garbage or soon to be desert city ? Climate is also nice cool & windy & comfy with 28/16 range., So can roam around the city in afternoon also. As altitude of BLR is of 3000ft so nice hill station like climate feel is bonus to this metro city. So Garden city tag is still in reality here.. I actual wonder how this city has such dense trees cover inspite of annual rain below or around 1000mms !! I feel degradation of vegetation is more in Konkan & Ghat areas of Maharashtra than Karnataka..
