As per Skymet Weather, the Western Disturbance which was over Jammu and Kashmir is likely to move in an easterly direction that is expected to result in good rains over China.

Whenever a Western Disturbance approaches, it bifurcates into two arms, one arm moves south of Himalayas and thus gives rain over the northern plains. The other arm moves north of the Himalayas which gives rain and snow over China.

When it travels further east, it can encounter Tibetan plateau and give rain activity there which is the case at present. These rains will continue for the next 2-3 days.
