Uttarakhand snow

The weather in the hills of North India did not turn up exactly the way it had been forecast on New Year. Barring a few pockets, rain and snow eluded the region. Therefore it can be said that the last good spell of precipitation observed in Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand was between December 20 and 21.

However, a fresh Western Disturbance is going to approach the hills and start giving rain and snow in the region today onwards. To begin with, the weather activity will be scattered and the intensity will be light. But by tomorrow large parts of Uttarakhand and a few pockets in Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh will start observing rain and snow.

This weather activity will continue in the region for the next 48 hours. Thereafter another Western Disturbance will approach the hills around January 6 -lasting until January 8. During this period the weather activity will be intense and widespread in terms of rain and snow.

According to Skymet Meteorologists, this Western Disturbance is also expected to affect the Northwest Plains of Punjab, Haryana and Delhi in terms of scattered rain. This will again lead to a change in the day and night temperatures of the region.

Meanwhile, several places in the hills are recording sub-zero night temperature. For instance, the minimum in Srinagar today morning settled at -3°C, Qazigund -5°C, Banihal -2°C, Manali -1.4°C and Muktehswar 0°C.
