Western disturbance is an additional system to carry tropical rain which is very important in the sense that winter rainfall is at least 15 countries dependent on it.

This disorder is called because it disturbs the normal, stable, sunny and stable weather prevailing in the areas it affects. The Western term is used because all the countries that affect it are east.


It has its origin in the Mediterranean which, incidentally, is more than 3,000 miles northwest of north-central India where its influence can be recorded.

a path

The path of the rain tolerance system is very well known to meteorologists. Its trajectory is so reliable that if it affects Lebanon, Syria or Israel, and is very close to it, it is predictable more than 90 per cent accurately, how long it will take to reach Islamabad or even New Delhi. It is worth noting that these two capitals are located more than 2-3 thousand kilometers to the southwest of it.

For example, if the rain is currently raining in Tel Aviv, Israel, it can be easily predicted that when it hits Amman in Jordan, then Baghdad in Iraq, then Tehran in Iran, then Kabul in Afghanistan, then Islamabad in Pakistan, and finally New Delhi in India. Outside New Delhi, however, it loses its grip and precipitation drops sharply.

Typical features

The rain that is produced is of uniform pattern, for three to four days overcast sky. It is a slow-moving system, unlike the monsoon rains that resemble heavy clouds for a few hours and then become clear. In the case of Western turbulence, the sky was covered for several days with light to moderate rain flowing day and night.

Effects on temperature and humidity in the area that affects them

Western disturbances approaching the temperature of the area in which they will affect are raised by an average of 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity rises considerably. Then comes the rain which sometimes can give a cold. After his departure, there is a sharp drop in temperature and within 24 hours, temperatures can drop to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. The cold wind begins to blow and the humidity drops sharply.

In short, Western turmoil is a rain-bearing system that originated in the Mediterranean and affects as far afield as India.
