Hilly states of North India have been witnessing rain and thundershowers for the last few days. At present also, a Western Disturbance is seen over Jammu and Kashmir, which is gradually moving away towards the east. It will continue to give rains and thundershowers over Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand during the next 24 hours.

Thereafter, the weather will become dry. However, another Western Disturbance which is presently marked over Afghanistan will start affecting the hills of Western Himalayas by the night of April 28.

Hence, once again intensity of rain will increase over hilly states and moderate rain and thundershowers with one or two heavy spells are possible between April 29 -30.

Thunderstorm and lightning statusFamous tourist places such as Srinagar, Gulamarg, Pahalgam, Vaishno Devi, Shimla, Manali, Dharamsala, and Mussoorie will witness a rainy weekend.

So we can say that throughout April good rains will continue over Western Himalayas. The Western Disturbance will also induce cyclonic circulation over Central Pakistan and adjoining Punjab, Haryana and North Rajasthan. Due to this dust storm and thunder shower activities are possible at many places on April 29 -30.

Due to the pre-monsoon activities temperatures of North India will remain marginally normal.

This season, both the intensity and frequency of Western Disturbances have been more than the usual. According to Skymet Weather, since there are no formation of any significant weather system across the rest parts of the country, these Western Disturbances are being able to travel in lower latitudes.
