After the recent rains and snow in the hilly region of North India, weather is now gradually clearing. Rains had already reduced during the last 24 hours and we now expect dry weather conditions to now prevail across Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
With this, it is the best time for tourists to plan a visit to experience the scenic beauty of these Himalayan ranges. You may not see snowfall but snow peaked Himalayas is definitely not worth missing. It is also ideal time to visit Hindu shrine of Vaishno Devi, where devotees need to trek for around 14 km before offering prayers at the shrine.
Days would be fairly comfortable with ample of sunshine, keeping maximum temperatures in double digits. Meanwhile nights would continue to cold and chilly, with minimums still settling in single digits.
According to weathermen, the affecting Western Disturbance has now moved away from the region, paving way for clear sky. Further, we now do not expect any Western Disturbance very soon and the one which is expected would travel in the upper latitude and would not impact the weather over hills of North India.
Winter season would soon bod adieu to North India and February is the transition period. As we know, winters are governed by the passage, frequency and intensity of Western Disturbance, which is at the peak during December and January.
As we progress into the second half of February, the frequency of Western Disturbances starts decreasing. Also, they would now be travelling more in higher latitudes, unlike in low latitudes through Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal during the winter months. Thus, the impact of these systems would not be very severe now, resulting significant decrease in rain and snow during February. However one odd strong system still cannot be ruled out.
