As Rohtang Pass opens for public, it is quite the perfect weather to visit the hills

Rohtang pass

The major tourist attraction of Rohtang Pass has now opened for tourists starting today. The pass was closed since December following winter snowfall. A huge crowd of tourists will be seen in Manali through June as the pass opens again. The authorities seem welcoming the season and have made necessary arrangements for lakhs of visitors.

This is exactly when Himachal Pradesh and other hilly states see lakhs of tourists flocking in to get a respite from the summer heat.

Also, the weather seems welcoming in the hills as of now, despite some chances of rain.

At present, a Western Disturbance is far off from the country and is presently lying over Iran and adjoining Afghanistan. Another Western Disturbance is moving across the north of Jammu and Kashmir as an upper air system.

These systems will bring along rainfall at some higher reaches. Srinagar and adjoining areas may receive light rains and thunderstorm for a short period.

However, day temperature will continue to remain above normal in the area. Yesterday, many hill stations saw the maximum settle beyond 30 degrees which is considered as ‘heat wave’ condition for hill stations.

At present heat wave is being witnessed in low lying areas of the region like Jammu where the day temperature yesterday settled at 44.5°CHamirpur saw the maximum settle at 41.3°C, Bilaspur 42.5°C, Sundar Nagar 40.5°C, Pant Nagar 39°C and Dehradun recorded 40.4°C. Such a high temperature is quite unlikely in these places. Yet, the feel factor continues to remain pleasant.

Now, easterly southeasterly winds are expected to blow over the southern parts of the hill stations, which will drop the day temperatures by 2 to 3 degree Celsius in these places.

Mainly dry weather will prevail in the region except for a few places in the higher reaches, which makes it quite perfect to visit the hill states over the weekend.
