TWO CONSECUTIVE WDs A-3 & A-4 PRODUCED WIDESPREAD RAINFALL IN NORTH INDIA...
Western Disturbances with an induced low and a deeper trough brought widespread moderate to heavy rainfall in Northwest India. WDs namely A-3 & A-4 led to continuous five rainy days in northern parts. Parts of Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal & Punjab got heavy rain with strong gusts. Delhi-NCR, Haryana, Rajasthan & West UP also recorded light to moderate rain on multiple occasions. 

This continuous rainfall activity gradually lowered the day temperatures in both the plains & the hilly regions. Few areas are even 15 notches below the normal range. Delhi-NCR got one spell from each WD. The second spell on 18 April morning was stronger than the previous spell along with strong gusty winds & widespread rainfall in the whole region. Safdarjung observatory in New Delhi saw a south westerly squall on 18th morning with a maximum wind speed of 78 km/hr.

Western Rajasthan also benefitted from both the systems with light to moderate rain with strong winds. Also the day temperatures were much lower in parts of west UP on 18th due to rain in the early morning period which continued till afternoon.

Here's the maximum temperature & precipitation during the past 24 hours ending at 8:30 am IST(19 April) over various parts of the region...
