The Western Disturbance’s presence over Jammu and Kashmir has caused widespread rain and snow activities over the hills of North. In the last 24 hours, significant snowfall has been observed over the hills. Like for instance, snowfall activity has been observed in many places. Gulmarg recorded 18 mm, Qazigund 26 mm, Manali 30 mm, Srinagar 13 mm, Banihal 34 mm, Dharamshala 2 mm of snow.
Whereas Jammu recorded 3 mm of rain, Una 1 mm, Sundernagar 1 mm, Kullu recorded 7 mm of rain and snow and Shimla recorded traces of rainfall activities.
The Western Disturbance is presently moving away, and its intensity will keep reducing gradually. Despite this clouding and light to moderate rain and snow will occur at many places for the day over Jammu and Kashmir and North Uttarakhand. While significant improvement will be sight by tomorrow.
At the time of snow, the possibility of landslide cannot be ruled out. Yet another fresh Western Disturbance is approaching the hills and at present is over Afghanistan. This system is expected to affect the Western Himalayas by the night of November 25. Another spell of moderate rain and snow will be seen over the hills of North. As per our experts, the maximums will continue to remain below normal for the next couple of days.
From October 1 until today, Jammu and Kashmir is largely excess by 129% while Himachal Pradesh is excess by 9%. Uttarakhand, on the other hand, is deficit by 16%.
Seems like with the upcoming spell the values will further go up and there could be a marginal improvement in the deficit value of Uttarakhand.
